Primary selection/clipboard support landed in WebKit-gtk

You know the cool feature in linux that you can just select text to add it to clipboard and the middle-click somewhere to paste it? Well, the first part (select to add to clipboard) just landed in webkit. Cool, after proper font fall-back (though only for freetype backend) this is another thing I was itching to have working :-D Kudos to Alp Toker who seems to do most of the work on GTK port of WebKit I benefit from (i.e. he's fixing bugs I care most about) :-) For those interested, here's the bug report which will be closed only after also paste on middle click is in:

I'll be sure to build new WebKit package with this fix as soon as possible.
