That only makes sense if you have the user model of two clipboards.  But 
after years of KDE 1 and 2, people have learned to see it as one 

Default it to 2 clipboards if you must, but supporting the KDE 2 behavior 
(possibly with Klipper) is a nice way to reward users who have stuck by 
KDE a long time.
