If you want to implement clipboard paste using text-to-type, then there
is no work required at all in QEMU. That can be done in the VNC client
simply by sending keystrokes. Even for something moderately short like
a URL though this is quite painfully slow because you need a sleep
between each keystroke to avoid overflowing the keyboard driver input
