It's been suggested that it should be possible to copy text to the Windows clipboard (and equivalents) without using the mouse. The usual Windows idiom for this would be to move one end of the selection using the cursor keys, and the other end with the shifted cursor keys. Obviously imitating this directly would be silly, since users need the cursor keys to be sent to the server. One possibility might be to have a separate mode, in the style of NCSA Telnet for DOS, which uses Scroll Lock to switch into a mode in which no data are received and the cursor keys move a local selection cursor around.
Audit trail for this wish.
