I usually put it in the kill ring, since with session.el I have the kill
ring persistent between Emacs sessions.  Normally I just keep doing
`M-y' (`yank-pop') repeatedly to find the old text, which in an odd way
is similar to what you're suggesting.  So maybe a `yank-select' command
to select from the kill ring would be useful to you, coupled with a way
to persist the kill ring if session.el is too heavy for you?
