It is useful - however, as such I cannot commit it because:

- the toclip function belongs to platutils_*.py (now that multiple
platform implemetations exist, i.e it's not win32-only extension)

- It seems fishy to echo the string and pipe it to xsel (does it
really work with many lines?). Rather, it should do os.popen("xsel
-i","w").write(string) or somesuch.

So, if you could polish this along these lines, it would be great and
I would commit it. Not being able to write unit tests is

Thanks for the contribution in any case, and keep us posted whether or
not you are able to improve the contribution!
