(yuk) alternative: use `xpaste` or one of those little cli-cut-buffer
utils. I haven't tried this stuff m'self,  so I can't say much more.
However, C-y  would  be  much  more   handy.   

Another  handy  thing would  be C-a/C-b/C-f/C-e movement back and
forward thru the C-t ! input window. Useful  e.g. opening  a web 
address in  different browsers.  Haven't mentioned it before because
it's probably  a lot of extra code for one little functionality.

Another idea I toyed with for a while (not under RP, tho) was to use
an xterm / xvt instead of a WM-internal ]sh -c[ input

        that is,  run xterm -geom  100x1+700+0 or whatever,  and don't
        include it in the window  list -- use it modally (can't change
        focus until xterm dies).

, so you automatically get all the xterm & bash functionality.
