But other than that, why not just tell them to set
x-select-enable-clipboard ?

Thanks for reminding me: is there any reason x-select-enable-clipboard
isn't t by default?

I wouldn't want that.  It's non-conform to what _all_ other applications on
Linux do (same on Windows, I believe).

I mean no one would expect Firefox to put text into the clipboard if you
select it using the mouse.

[The mouse-drag-copy-region => nil I mentioned elsemail stops that in particular]

Why would I want to have each and every snippet I kill in the clipboard?

Buggered if I know, but last time the matter came up Eli in particular expressed a desire for that on w32. I did promise to allow that with a clipboard-active-regions setting by analogy with the existing
select-active-regions.  (I do _not_ want them mixed up!)

Each build under w32 (via WINE, I don't have windows) for me is (or was, must try again) quite annoying and painful relative to the couple of minutes it takes to bootstrap emacs natively, so I haven't completed that work yet.
