Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: tomboy

I am accustomed to using the following shortcuts which are standard in many applications:

And tomboy *does* seem to support the first two: copy and paste.
But for some reason, in Tomboyt, shift-delete *does not* put the deleted text onto the clipboard.(does not perform a "cut")
Can this please be added, I find myself frequently frustrated by this inconsistency.

I realize there are other shortcuts (ctrl-c, ctrl-v, ctrl-x), but these
(shift-delete, etc.) shortcuts are particularly convenient when
selecting text via keyboard: the left hand is already holding the shift
key, and the right hand is using either the arrow keys or home/end, all
of which are just next to the delete and insert keys used for these
