      I'm wondering if we can really omit CF_UNICODETEXT. It's unclear what
      encoding CF_TEXT should use. The active code page? Any 8-bit encoding
      that the file happens to contain? And even when MS specifies something,
      do applications really implement it correctly?

      Using CF_UNICODETEXT has the advantage that there can be no confusion
      about the encoding, thus every application that uses it (like Vim) will
      copy/paste correctly.
