IMO (once again), having a clipboard that operates at the level of the
OS rather than the app (!!) is neither a bell nor a whistle. It's
cake, not icing. It's underpants, not tuxedo. Kids of seven use it,
and then keep using it their whole working lives.

I'm no developer either, but this is *so* basic to working with
computers (ANY working with computers!) that I'm happy to do what I
can. Which is ... what? find some programs? report file size?
dependencies? mem usage? Tell me! :)
