OK, so we're at least second generation OT now, but... it's fun. =:^)
1) You can see what pan does with rewrapping when auto-wrap is on and I
don't manually rewrap... obviously not perfect. (I'd normally either
turn wrapping off for that or rewrap it manually, but since it came up...)
2) Had you heard, CDE has been open-sourced now! =:^) Rather late, but
they did open-source it, announcement maybe a month ago. (I switched
from MS when they crossed the line I couldn't/wouldn't cross with
eXPrivacy, tho I'd tried Linux before that, but that was after CDE, so
kde2's CDE color theme was about the closest I got to CDE, personally.)
3) Back on topic, KDE of course has a send-to menu, which can AFAIK be
modified via modifying the appropriate *.desktop service entries, but
that's for sending files, not arbitrary text.
4) Of course for text, there's klipper and its config. Set it up
correctly, and you get a popup when either selected (X-style-clipboard)
or copied (MS-style clipboard) text matches a configurable regex. The
popup can then have one or more selectable actions associated with it. I
use that quite a bit here, having quite a number of customized regexes
and associated actions.
