How about something that takes the current caret position in the source

The command for this would be in the menu as "Edit -> Paste as String", and
reassignable through custom keyboard bindings.
This would be easy enough to add, but for me unfortunately I've been busy
with moving and renovating my house. When I'm done if no one else has added
it, I might write it as an add on package.
I think both options should be available. Sometimes the clipboard contains
'too much' and I want to limit the selection.
The underlying mechanism is of course the same.
