Hahaha :D

Now I really must check it out ...

But - a distant bell rings - I heard somewhere that these not
exactly hackish workarounds - or actually they are
clever hacks! - I heard they were not needed since Emacs
provided this out of the box. I remember I tested, but it
didn't work.

Maybe that is because of the configuration option
--with-x-toolkit=no (actually I don't know when I started with
that, I remember the emacs-nox package ... - that's "no X" -
but now comes yet another twist, I, who configure/compile like
that since I just use Emacs in a Linux VT/tty/console with no
need for that it would seem, I use that stuff (xsel.el) every

Literally! It isn't really necessary for life/work, the 19/20
use case is to watch some video material I find on the net or
someone tells me to check out so I get a sneak peak with mp3
before I decide to download it or not.

So maybe I and people with similar "habits" should compile
with the X stuff?

But if everyone does, what is the deal with xclip.el and
xsel.el ? Can everyone stop using them if everyone just
compiled with the X stuff?

Here, no sneak peak, _instant download_. Gigi Hadid and
progressive trance (progressive trance = repeats the same
pattern also in long loops, but all the while force and
intensity is increased. can you tell there is something fishy
going on?)
