Apparently, there's more needs about copy/paste of data than existing 
now. Let's define exactly what's needed.

Query Tool:
- Copy of complete output to clipboard    (question: which format?!? to 
be answered for M$ _and_ for gtk)
- same for marked rows
- same for a column (?) (we don't use a grid, so only single column 
possible, if any)

Data Viewer:
same three options, here we can mark cells as desired, which makes the 
question of correct clipboard format even worse.


We should take this on the TODO list, as soon as there are useful 
answers about clipboard formats.

Regards,
Andreas
