In my standard X environment most programs accept the convention, that
MMB *and* shift-insert insert the selection, while whichever program
supports the clipboard it has some clipboard shortcut (and those two
do not overlap). For inserting clipboard in selection-aware programs
(urxvt for example), a I have keybinding to overwrite the selection
with the clipboard:

{ MODKEY, XK_c, spawn, SHCMD("xsel -b -o | xsel -i") },
