I think that you are correct: by default there is a clash, which I think
is inelegant. However, I usually copy using mouse selection and paste
using middle mouse button (Button 2).

Also, I find that using Alt as the mod key for dwm clashes too much with
other programs, so sometimes I use Ctrl+Alt and sometimes I use Super
(MS Windows) key.
