Good idea.. And then we can rewrite the keyboard code for SoC 2008!  The
clipboard is quite a bit tricky and AJ I think would be as picky about this
as the opengl fixes and WM fixes that go in.  Although I would still like to
see the keyboard code get fixed soon, I don't think it is going to happen.
Of course, I am starting school again this fall (changed majors so I need to
start all over), so perhaps this time I can take some programming classes,
and by the time that SoC 2008 rolls around I should be familiar enough to be
able to understand the things that Peter Astrand was talking about before,
and possibly code it myself.
