Oh, yeah, that's the other thing: It would be really nice if, when you
copy text from an eww buffer that it shows up as HTML if you paste it
into Firefox (or an Emacs HTML buffer, I guess).

And perhaps also (somehow) with different defaults pr mode.  If you're
yanking into an HTML buffer, `C-y' might default to yanking the
text/html clipboard?

And...  er...  what happens if you have an image in the clipboard?
Hm...  Well, it might make sense in a Message buffer?  It gets turned
into a image/jpeg (or whatever) part?
