Hi Antoine,

Xterm supports pasting from the ordinary clipboard, not just from the
primary selection buffer. Consult the documentation -- it's in there
somewhere. Let me know what you find.

That said, I understand some neckbearded types of folks love the
traditional X11 flow of middle-clicking and selecting all over the
place, the same kind of genius that goes wild with Plan 9's Acme
editor. Those types of people are likely to not really care for the
other mode, nor really be altering back and forth between middle-click
and ctrl+v, so I don't think having a command line switch is useful.
Rather, I had in mind exactly what Brian provided -- a simple
environment variable that you could set in your

I'll consider merging something similar to this in the next few days.
Then it'll be pretty simple to add the variable to your bashrc (or...
plan 9's rc rc? just kidding), and then you'll have primary selection
buffer support.
