 That still doesn't make it good though. Have you never tried to paste the 
other one and wished they both shared the contents? I can certainly 
understand why people want the synchronizing.

 But as long as people don't try to copy&paste more than plain text with the 
mouse synchronizing in Klipper should do, so I think this class can be dumped 
and there's no need to do anything with QClipboard. The class can be 
reintroduced later if needed anyway.
