So far as I recall, Gimp has always lacked the ability to copy and paste images to other applications. Is this something that still requires support from Gtk to do cleanly? I noticed that the Win32 port of Gimp ships with a plugin that hacks in some clipboard support, and have had a go at porting it to Mac OS X:

It seems to work for me (on Mac OS X 10.3.4), though the whole method feels a bit hackish; requiring separate Copy and Paste menu items to access the system clipboard is unusual...

I'm not sure this is really the right place, but I'd appreciate any feedback, in particular bug reports and any advice on making a distributable binary that can be dropped into place for people using bundled binary distributions of Gimp.
