The only issue I have with the X behavior is that I can't
figure out to efficiently perform a replacement paste. E.g.
If you want to paste a URL into a browser in Windoze you'd
select the current URL and paste over it.
In X once you select the text you want to replace it
becomes the new copied text. I had some success using
gclipper, because it allowed me to access a stack of copied
text items. Is there a better way?
