A comments on this.  I don't think duplicate events should be
discarded.  As I said above, if you paste twice fast in an xterm,
Emacs will get two requests that are identical.  Most often than not,
the time in the request is set to CurrentTime (zero), so even that
won't differ.

I looked at this some more -- and the removal of duplicates only
happens while the INCR protocol is used -- i.e. when we have a really
big selection.

So it only happens when there is a genuine risk that selection
requests will arrive faster than we can process them.

That is good, it is better for the user that Emacs stays responsive, and he can always paste again if Emacs discards one request. But I think sending a reject is better that just discarding. After all, Emacs knows it won't handle the request, and the other side then doesn't have to time out. I don't know how klipper acts on that though.
