Seriously, if you don't like it, much of this isn't the fault of sl.
That GTK programs use a different paste buffer for ^Ins is completely
arbitrary and probably the wrong thing GTK does there, but now that
doesn't force sl software to succumb to the same weirdness - see also:
Argumentum ad popolum (developum? - totally winging this one).
You know where to find the source, so it won't be hard for you to
figure out how to apply patches.
