I'm curious if it is possible to see what the user is doing, in other
words view events before they get sent to a given applications.
It's not for spyware, but to provide context sensitive services, and
being helpful. This is related to the ideas of "calm computing",
"proactive computing" and experimentation with user interfaces.
In order not to eat too much CPU ideally I'd like to be able to
intercept all events matching a regular expression and only wake up if I
need to something like pop up an information window in response to a
user action or network event, or add to an array a list of changes
files. Is this possible? The wxwidgets manual didn't seem to helpful.

I think it is (think of SPY++, the debugging tool); I am sure that
X allows it too. I am not sure how this could be done in a cross-platform
way, and wxWidgets definitely does not allow it.
This is, assuming that you meen intercepting events directed to

I want to use the clipboard with a custom data object, the object being
metadata as a class object or hash/hashref.
I have worked with TextDataObject and DataObjectSimple successfully but this
is a bit more complicated and I am not really sure where to start. So if
anyone has crossed this bridge already, I would like to hear how you did it.
I suppose I could just serialize the object/hash and store it in a
TextDataObject but I would rather be able to store the object/hash directly.
Any assistance appreciated.
