Great!  Looks like someone more competent got to it first. :)

Ok, thanks.

Hm... I sort of think that the "mouse stuff" is *by far* the most useful :),
although I'd be curious to see what other Emacs users out there -- especially
those on Windows and MacOS -- think.  On those platforms, including the
forthcoming MacOS X, selecting a text with the mouse (or with the shift-arrow
commands) DOES NOT automatically copy it into the clipboard.

I guess the more "logical" place to put all of this would be in the cua-mode.el
package, but it would probably require much more ugly hacking.

Anyway, others' thoughts on this will be highly appreciated.
