 We can handle these in a per-OS fashion.
 If on Unix, this is the behavior we support.

+Implemented pasting of *clipboard* in svn r60722. 
+However, that is not the same as the primary selection buffer, see 
+here: http://standards.freedesktop.org/clipboards-spec/clipboards-
+0.1.txt We followed that standard when implementing clipboard support 
+in our X11 driver.
+I'm not sure that adding lots of special X11 codepaths into TextBox 
+is a good use of our time right now. In order to fully support this 
+we have to a X11 only API to the driver, to allow setting the primary 
+on every selection change, keeping a copy down there so when the 
+selection request message comes by we can hand the data over, and 
+code in TextBoxBase to a) read the primary buffer for pasting when 
+using middle button, and b) set the primary buffer on selection
