But that would mean setting the selection each time the user does a
C-w or M-w or any other action that pushes text on the kill ring,
won't it?  If so, I'm afraid it would make Emacs routine ops
significantly slower, and for no good reason: most Emacs ops have
nothing to do with pasting in other apps.
