Btw, it's best to ask Gtk2Hs questions on the Gtk2Hs users list:
gtk2hs-users at lists.sourceforge.net

The copy & paste for TextView works with the normal keybindings, eg
ctl-c/ctl-v/ctl-x (or any other custom ones that have been setup).

To do manual or custom clipboard stuff needs the Clipboard object which
we have not bound yet. If that's a priority for you we can have a go at
binding that before the upcoming Gtk2Hs 0.9.11 release.

If you want it to help then we'll gladly accept patches via darcs send.
