True, but it's courter intuitive for a Windows user. I think we're better 
off simply copying to clipboard on select (using the Win32 API). All
consoles in X behave this way, there's no way a user can tell our console
it's written for Winelib, and hence behaves differently. In fact, the
user should not care what lib a console uses: a console, is a console,
is a console.
