Presentation action for getting text into an X cut_buffer0

I looked around and found nothing appropiate im my save file from the
clim mailing list, so here it goes:
What would be the right (CLX) magic to build a presentation action
that allows one to add the underlying text of a presentation to be
available for pasting into another X application, say xterm? The X
application I have in mind is Liken, the Mac emulator for
I don't know what the CLX magic is, but the way I would implement
some sort of mouse-based cut-and-paste is to write a presentation
action that uses TRACKING-POINTER to sweep out a region, then use
COPY-TEXTUAL-OUTPUT-HISTORY to grab the text.
Making the presentation action give nice feedback is a bit tricky.
