But it is something that people used to CUA systems might like.
There a normal procedure is this: you mark some text, hit Ctrl-C for
copy.  Then you mark some other text, hit Ctrl-V for paste.  This
replaces the other text with the previously copied text.

IIUC, Stefan is suggesting a similar behavior.  The only difference
is that Emacs sometimes implicitly invokes copy (when you mark
something with the mouse), so it looks weird when described.
This line is not blank.
