I'm a Mac programmer who has been spending more and more time on Linux, and I have become frustrated with the way clipboards work on Linux applications.

As a proof-of-concept, I have been implementing a stand-alone clipboard server and a client library for that server.  The only dependency is the sd-bus functions from libsystemd:

Has the idea of pulling clipboard functionality out of the window server been considered by this group?  Is someone else working on this problem?
