    I don't know about Gnome, but KDE won't be on wayland until Qt 5 is out, which is the first version of Qt that will have native Qt support. I think kwin developers were waiting to port to wayland until the API stabilized.

    Wayland seems like the perfect opportunity to do such a thing, let's just hove they do.
    You do know that the same "design flaw" is part of most operating systems (including Windows), don't you?

    Of course Windows comes with some sort of a clipboard manager by default since a long time, but AFAIK that is only used if the application uses it explicitly (which for some use cases is a better solution, but of course it won't work if the application has no support for it).
