As you said, xclip does a lot more than sselp and in this case sselp
perfectly fits the bill the suckless way.

People who know where to find dmenu should be able to find sselp,
I believe most dmenu users are getting new dmenu version here,

I don't know for others distros, but in debian for example,
dmenu and sselp are packaged together with a bunch of other tools.

I meant that anywhere one could get dmenu, sselp is never far away.
