The Clipboard can be accessed in Mathematica as if it were a notebook. 
For example:

NotebookGet[ClipboadNotebook[]]

I guess it would be possible to use this to build a system that would 
juggle several clipboards, moving the 'right' one into the 
ClipboardNotebook. If you made the relevant operations work off the menu 
system, the result could be quite neat.
