A long time ago, I implemented support for rich-text copying _out_ of
Emacs in the HAVE_NTGUI case, but that code never landed in the
tree. The feature you're requesting is pretty straightforward to
implement, but it needs platform-specific C code. I agree about the user
options for controlling it --- perhaps on an operation-by-operation
basis via some kind of special prefix flag.
