[python-win32] wait for new clipboard data?

I think there is a clipboard watcher concept, but pywin32 doesn't expose 
it.  One option might be to simply poll 
win32clipboard.GetClipboardSequenceNumber() - but the docs list some 
caveats which might mean it doesn't work in all cases (specifically in 
delayed rendering)
