default should be UTF8_STRING, and if that fails, try TEXT and then STRING.

Why not COMPOUND_TEXT instead of TEXT above?  Please see the
docstring of x-select-request-type.

I forgot about that.  It is better to try that before TEXT.


Anyway, the current selection-related codes mix an abstract
layer (something like interprogram-cut/paste-function) and
X-specific layer in a chaos manner.  It seems that overhaul
and re-design is necessary.


It is a bit of a mess. Separation of interprogram cut/paste and X selections would be nice.
