Bug Description

It would be nice to have an "Import" option to a text field's context menu, next to cut/copy/paste, that will open a ContentPeerPicker for apps that can share Text.

Currently you can open another app, and copy text from it if it supports copying, then paste it into the text field. But we have a nice ContentHub service that supports sharing chunks of text, and it would streamline the user experience if we could enable this by default for text inputs.

Bonus points if we could send some context along with the import request, such as what app or website it's going to, but I don't think the ContentHub API supports that.

  [ Sergio Cazzolato ]
  * This change is done to remove the dependencies with upstart in the tests.
    To start apps with env vars is gonna be used the launch_test_application
    method provided by autopilot in its test base class which is a wrapper for
    the ubuntu-app-launch tools (API). This change removes all the dependencies
    with upstart, so all the projects which are using the initctl api and
    fixtures will be impacted. An update in the documentation or in the blog is
    gonna be done also to communicate this change to the developers.

  [ Albert Astals Cid ]
  * Labs is at 1.0.
  * You can't save the focus after the popup/dialog has been created, at that
    stage the dialog has focus already, you need to do it before creating it.
