I think such a thing could just as well be an external tool.

Well yes -- it's certainly planned, but let's take one thing at a time.
If you've followed this mailing list you should know that I do have my

hmm... actually I quite often do multiple copy's and then paste them
all at once (when I want to collect a list or similar), so I wouldn't
actually like this behavior. But I understand others might appreciate
it, I'll consider how I can allow something like this in the future.

Cmd-option-shift-V to open it, use arrow keys to go to the item you
want, and press return. Now it's pasted.
