OTOH, if you copy a book title which you marked in italics, you do
want the italics to come with.  If you copy a paragraph that you
carefully marked up with bold emphasis in places, courier font for
command text, and some underlines for good measure, you _also_ want
the properties to come with.

Clearly, the only real answer to this is to make it possible to choose
on a per-kill basis whether you want the properties to come with, and
let the user choose the default.
