After commenting to Suhaib that XFree86's clipboard integration should
be via cygwin.... I took a stab at it.

I've got /dev/clipboard accepting writes (only a single write() call at
the moment :[ )... I'm working on allowing a series of sequential writes
now...

Chuck - if you're on this list - did you find any documentation on how
linux /dev/clipboard functions.

I.E. When you write 512 bytes, then wait 2 seconds then another 512
bytes, can other applications read the 1st 512 bytes while you pause? Or
does the write only occur on close() ?

That's my only quandary at the moment.
