[PATCH] protocol: replace the usage of selection with clipboard

Isn't Wayland differentiating between the "selection" and the clipboard?

The selection is changed when the user selects an object. The clipboard 
is changed only when the user does a cut or copy operation.

There is also drag & drop. Though in most cases this can be the same as 
the selection, I think there was some pathological examples showing that 
it has to be it's own piece of data.

One of the patches changed "selection" to "data source", maybe "data 
source" is a better name?

I also am trying to reattach the patch here because for some reason it 
did not show up at text in my email:
