I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

What I (and many others) like about the current implementation is that
you can do "Select" in say, xterm, and then do "C-y" in Emacs to yank
that selection.

It sounds like your idea would instead make the current selection
available via "C-y M-y" which sounds maddeningly unintuitive -- the
current selection, after all, is _current_...


Patience, n. A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.
