 Pasting things from the above FAQ section into "pico ~/.inputrc"

"2~5~Be2~5~4~24~BC": paste-from-clipboard

 Nice pasting... eh..?

Well, after adding (for "insert-key"-paste)
	"\e]2~": paste-from-clipboard
to ~/.inputrc and restarting all of cygwin: It doesn't work.
I also have
	DEL: forward-backward-delete-char
which does work in pico (internal handling?), but not in Bash...
(most things set as per default)

 It is nice to have a FAQ, but when things described there doesn't work...

 "\M-[2~": paste-from-clipboard # insert key
OTOH seems to work nicely (suggesttion by Randall Schulz, 2003-02-14)
this also remedies the first problem.

 Who is the FAQ maintainer?
