In case you stumble upon `ydotool` in your search, I'd consider against
recommending it for the moment, reason not being yet ripe for a general
use (I have skimmed through the list of issues a while ago).

I couldn't find a Wayland tool mapping to `xdotool` but in this case I
think it's not a big issue: when invoked by dmenu-wl, passmenu is able
to copy the password in the clipboard. Pasting the password is still a
manual operation (which imo is a feature).

Also, spotted a typo:

@@ -11,3 +13,4 @@ instead of copied to the clipboard.
