Other complications come if your controls try to second-guess you
when it comes to copy&paste. With the keyboard, you want to be
able to copy, but not paste. Likewise, in Win32, textboxes and
comboboxes (not combo-list boxes) allow you to right click on
them to get a context menu, an option of which is "paste", which
can put all sorts of bogus data in the field if not intercepted
properly. Within X environments, middle-click-to-paste may also
be a problem. I don't know if either case applies to wx widgets,
but it's something I've banged my head against in other languages
on Win32 (VB, in particular) when trying to make a filtered
(though not R/O) control.
