I have a similar feeling (this is the reason why I asked about
opinions), because when you are in a X environment copy/paste is
supplied by the X server, and when you are in a kernel virtual
terminal it is supplied by gpm, so I do not really understand why
the application has to deal with the mouse. And it is true, the
patch removes the possibility of setting shift-mouse binding, and
I do not like this point.

What terminals support this feature?
