At least in the immediate workflow of triple-click line, right-click
some other line (the highlighted area is line-based on both ends),
middle click a destination line, it would make sense to act
line-based: if the right mouse button is line-aligned for convenience,
doing the same with middle seems appropriate.

Whether to actually record something in the killring in that situation
rather than take the clue from the current situation like mouse-3
does, is the question.  Probably I'll first implement this based on
the mouse-3 code.
