Hey, Tom,

What do you mean by supporting those formats? Most of the apps I listed are
text only - if I copy a png and try to paste it into a text field, what
should happen? Do you have a bug report describing the kind of behaviour you
want fixed?

Sorry for all the questions, it just sounds like an interesting problem I
know nothing about :)
Thanks for the info!
