But it is already possible ! You can Command-C and Command-V from/to  
The problem is that most of the time, it is not visible, because it  
is overloaded by the copy/paste ability of the textfields when they  
have the focus. And the main text area does have the focus most of  
the time. And it is very difficult to make it lose the focus.
The easiest way to use this feature is to select an history or a  
library item. It deliberately "deselects" the main text area to let  
you Copy/Paste the content.
