      Description

      Certain clipboard managers support filters or custom action based on selection owner (https://github.com/erebe/greenclip can omit selection from history if it comes from "blacklisted application"). Unfortunately, Qt uses generic name "Qt Selection Window" thus making it impossible to distinguish different Qt applications. Is it possible to make Qt use QCoreApplication::applicationName as clipboard owner name (by default)?
