[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#548072: mc: could re-use clipboard content between, say, editor and search-replace dialog

Package: mc
Version: 2:4.7.0-pre1-3
Severity: wishlist

It would be lovely if

a) mc could re-use the content of the cut-paste buffer between, say,
the editor and dialogs (search-replace inside the editor or even carry
over to the search-file/rename-file etc dialogs in the dir viewer)

b) could somehow put the file-under-cursor or list-of-selected-files
into the cut-paste buffer so it can be re-used inside the editor

Shouldn't be too hard, I'd assume ?
