Well,  in that  case,  users  will see  that  they can  copy-and-paste
between  any  X application  (Gnome,  KDE,  others),  and not  between
GNUstep applications,  and they will conclude  rightfully that GNUstep
is not up to its promise.



Anyway, even  with all three hosts on  the same LAN, I'd  like to hear
your idea of the sequence  of events when copy-and-paste is done. Note
that you're  involving two gpbs servers, and  the GNUstep applications
don't know each other. Then?
