Bug Description

Is it possible to remove one entry from the clipboard?

I use a password manager (Keepass) and copy/past passwords from that manager to the browser. After that I would like to remove the password from Diodon, but keep the other entries.

We can implement this either as a plugin or being part of the Diodon core.

Maybe the password manager keepass (or other managers as well?) mark the password in a clipboard as password. This way it would also be possible to have an option to not add password to the clipboard history at all.

We also have to consider whether something like this would be possible with a Zeitgeist integration.

(If not or else) It would also be to have an option to list applications which from not collect clipboard data.

As this is mainly concerning passwords I have renamed this issue. For removing single clipboard entries I have added an idea to the blueprint https://blueprints.launchpad.net/diodon/+spec/ideas-for-plugins
