When I revived the MS-DOS port 2 years ago, I had a good reason not to
load common-win.el.  I tried, and it caused trouble, so I removed it
from loadup.el and left behind a comment (which admittedly lacks
details).  I could try that again, if it's important, and report the
problems it causes, if any are left.

That said, I don't understand why selection-related stuff belongs to
*-win.el.  It has nothing to do with window systems; it's quite
possible that text terminals will be able to access selections (and I
understand some of them already do).  What will we do then--load
common-win.el on a tty as well?

So how about finding a better home for that stuff?  Like frame.el or
mouse.el, for example?
