sometimes, copy paste isnt enough, because not all apps use the clipboard. 
for example, most remote desktops like rdp or vnc unless that app has its 
own clipboard sharing mechanism. while one could simple view their keepass 
file and type, this has two problems. 

   - shoulder surfing
   - keyboard timing attacks

before qubes, when i ran vmware/virtualbox with packer and ansible, i would 
use xsel to copy and xdotool to create keyboard events on the receiving vm. 
is there a way to do this with qrexec or the input proxy? could this be 
added, perhaps as ctrl-shift-t? 

this could be tricky. i had trouble using virtualboxes built in keyboard 
typing for example, and a script that worked on vmware didnt work reliably 
on virtualbox.
