Thank you everyone.

There are still a few further clipboard improvements I have planned, which
I'll elaborate on separately, but briefly:
- it might not work on macOS, and probably needs another patch.
- SVG can be copied out of OpenOffice, but cannot be pasted into OpenOffice
- Neither can we paste any other vector graphics format from Inkscape. We
might need to change our MIME types for WMF and EMF to image/wmf and
image/emf, also known as image/x-wmf and image/x-emf (which Inkscape uses).
- Only on Windows, can WMF and EMF be copied out of OpenOffice. On other
platforms it uses the wrong MIME types, application/x-openoffice-wmf and
application/x-openoffice-emf, which nothing else supports, so you can't
- Inkscape doesn't sort its clipboard formats in descending order of
quality (vector graphics formats before raster graphics formats), which is
a bug in Inkscape. But we should handle such buggy apps by looking for
vector graphics formats first, then falling back to raster formats if none
are found. At present PNG is offered before SVG, so we could paste the
worse format first!
- There are probably all kinds of other clipboard improvements I haven't
even thought of yet :-).

Oh and I really like the fact we only offer vector image formats for charts
and drawing on our clipboard at the moment. LO also offers image/png, which
can probably be pasted in a wider number of applications, but will waste
space, and be blurry when zoomed.
