If a test to check if we have to newly own the PRIMARY
selection is trivial, there should be no problem.

Another candidate for checking that is somewher near here in
command_loop_1 () (around line 1818).


      if (current_buffer == prev_buffer
          && last_point_position != PT
          && NILP (Vdisable_point_adjustment)
          && NILP (Vglobal_disable_point_adjustment))

This place is similar to post-command-hook, but we can avoid
unnecessary Lisp calls in many cases.
