Since this library doesn't seem to have much to do with drawing
anyway, I fail to see why it should pollute the already taken and very
generic 'libdraw'.

As far as I have seen from sporadically following this thread is that
this is a library that tries to solve a personal issue for the author
(writing text on a PDA/phone?). Since it can't draw stuff but insist
on handling clipboards, maybe the name should reflect that.
