I can't claim to understand how the clipboard works under MS-Windows, or
indeed how Emacs handles the clipboard under X-Windows, but I don't
think it will be easy to emulate the astoundingly overengineered, and
sometimes useful, selection mechanism defined by the ICCCM.  I think
that when trying to put media into a selection, non-X systems tend to
just put a link (such as a filename, or an inode number) to some file
containing the contents of the media into the clipboard as plain text.

AFAIK, though, these other systems just define something similar to cut
