Hi all,

first: Dézsi, it's great that you care about our UI!

As one of the UX-advise guys, I have to agree with that. Gnome solve
the same problem by just making the text selectable (and giving it a
context menu), which is certainly not the the most obvious but
probably the least intrusive way to add that functionality.
At most, we would want an ImageButton with a little clipboard icon on
it, as Andras proposed.
