Adding HTML Clipboard Format support to win32-clipboard

Detailed description
Adding HTML Clipboard Format support to win32-clipboard would be helpful.

Windows supports a clipboard format called "HTML Format". This format allows various fragments of html formatted
text to be copy and pasted between applications. The overview about this format is [1].

UltraEdit has this feature as well as Word, Excel. You can copy some fragment of Web browser and paste HTML source to
UltraEdit by special pasting menu.

There are C# implementation[2] and Python implementation[3] for reference.

Implemented in the latest version in the git repo, and will be
pushed out as part of the 0.6.0 release.

No, I did not forget! :)

For anyone else who may wander onto this page, I already have
some code to do the HTML Copy-to-Clipboard if you need it now
rather than the official code later: http://johnallen.us/?p=289

I've got the code submitted to the mailing list in CVS (slightly
modified). I'm currently debating whether to keep a separate
HtmlClipboard class or just integrate it into the main clipboard.rb
file. I'm now leaning towards the latter.

Looks like a good idea. :)
