A follow-up from https://github.com/backdrop/backdrop-issues/issues/1265

From @docwilmot

This is a great idea. How about we add one of those js "click this link/button to copy to clipboard" thingies as well?

From @quicksketch

Unfortunately the only way to do this (afaik) is to use a Flash-based widget. Normal JavaScript doesn't have access to write to the clipboard.

From @Dinornis

no Flash stuff, please.

How does GitHub do it?
