This thread gave me an idea :-)

Constructive criticism most welcome!

This global minor mode rebinds a few keys to commands which remove bits
of text but *do not* put them on the kill ring.  It is useful for
repetitive tasks involving multiple yanks of the same string; the string
you yank will not get pushed back in the kill ring by new additions."
