I should make myself useful around here on occasion when items are within my skill set. But I already struggle to find time for that in the libvirt community :-).

The GTK Clipboard implementation may cause guest hangs.

Therefore implement a new configure switch --enable-gtk-clipboard,
disabled by default, as a meson option.

Regenerate the meson build options to include it.

The initialization of the clipboard is gtk.c, as well as the
compilation of gtk-clipboard.c are now conditional on this new option
to be set.

Can this be initialized with get_option(), instead of the two calls below?

'boolean' seems a more appropriate type, but I see 'feature' is common practice with these various options. Is gtk_clipboard marked experimental elsewhere? Is there a need for the warning text?

Same here. None of the other options have such warning. Cant this be treated like the others, just another option to be enabled or disabled? Whether or not the option works is another matter.
