True. Desired function: provide system-wide clipboard, not dependent
on apps running.

Alternative is to keep apps open, which is bound to take even more
memory. What if I have "Big-App" running, and I want to copy from it
to "Bigger-App"? I have to keep both open at the moment. On limited
memory, that's far worse. (I speak from experience!)

I put this reference into the "bug report" (a.k.a. "opinion alert"):

Might also be worth comparing what our XFCE friends have done:
