If I interract with another program before I change to Emacs and do C-y, I'd say close to 100%.

If that's true for most users, this proposed feature is likely to be
inconvenient.  It will be pulling in lots of selections from other

The point is to have a way to pull in the selection from some other
program even after you've done a kill command in Emacs.  This way
seems not to be a good idea, so what else can we suggest?

As a kill command i Emacs makes Emacs own the selection, we must pull in the foreign selection before the kill.
