I want yank and paste commands to use the system clipboard by default. Vim has an option for this: clipboard=unnamed which makes yank and paste work with the register '*' instead of the unnamed register. This works great on Windows where '*' is the clipboard. However, on X11 the clipboard is the '+' register, and so I find myself having to type "+y and "+p instead of the shorter y and p when I want to use the clipboard.
Attached is a patch which adds a new flag "unnamedplus" to the 'clipboard' option, which behaves exactly like the "unnamed" flag, except that it uses the '+' register. Please, consider it for inclusion in Vim. Thanks.
