Add support for OSC 52
OSC 52 control code can be used to copy text into the clipboard.
tmux has native support for the OSC 52 sequence. See
man tmux https://linux.die.net/man/1/tmux under the set-clipboard setting.
If gnome terminal could support OSC 52 it would remove the reliance on xclip or xsel and copying in tmux would work regardless of ssh tunnels.
VTE has support for parsing the escape code: _VTE_OSC(XTERM_SET_XSELECTION, 52)
w3 clipboard-apis might also be an informative read.
It's been stale for a while, but I'm interested in getting a conversation up on gitlab, since we've moved here -https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=795774
