N.B. I used interprogram-*-functions rather than X11isms (considered
mouse-yank-primary to be an X11ism) to preserve valuable abstraction
barriers between term (window system) specifics and emacs core.  Such
barriers are perhaps currently crumbled slightly as Jason Rumney's
recent w32-vars mail in this thread illustrates, but are IMO worthy of
repair, not teardown, especially given multi-tty.


recent-X11-style behaviour, propagate the active region to the X11 primary,
_without_ affecting clipboard or kill-ring.


recent-X11-style behaviour, middle-button insert of X11 primary,
_without_ affecting clipboard or kill-ring.
