Put a stack into a variable?

It means that you can make it work. "Go to url" won't work, but you can 
download the data, set clipboarddata["objects"] and paste.

Not sure if it is a bug. It is if copied stacks lose properties that 
aren't part of the old format. Otherwise I'd call it a feature request.
