Bug Description

In Edit Metadata dialog there is a button placed in front of the edit box for IDs. This button pastes the content of the clipboard, prefixed by the string "isbn:" in the ID-field.
It would be nice to have the choice, which ID the clipboard content represents, before one pastes it into the field. So the button could have a sort of list/pulldown where one can choose e.g. "paste as amazon_de: or "paste as google.". This in my eyes would be the best solution cos its flexible. I personally organize books by amazon keys.
Another option would be: Leave the button as it is "Paste clipboard content as id" and add a preference where one can configure the prefix key (e.g. replace "isbn:" by "amazon_de:").

Calibre version: 3.0 and future versions (congrats to the major relase) - Windows 10

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.
