      Description

      It turns out that Gnome already does it, so there is a protocol that we can implement:

      https://git.gnome.org/browse/mutter/tree/src/wayland/protocol/gtk-primary-selection.xml

      https://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/phoronix/latest-phoronix-articles/1003373-firefox-59-might-ship-with-working-wayland-support (several people think it's indispensable as part of the Firefox Wayland support)
