between them won't work.

It's not backwards compatible either, since an older Vim expects no
conversion (assuming you run two versions of Vim for some reason).
This would require a new atom to be used for the clipboard, which
includes the name of the encoding. The receiver of the clipboard can
then attempt conversion. This isn't very difficult.

some sites do remove them. You can upload the patch somewhere and let
us know the URL.
