Extending cut-and-paste: peeking at next paste item

This is more of a speculative idea.

By pressing


it could display the item to paste (by default, the last item in the clipboard list) in a little 'tool tip' display near the cursor, thus allowing you to 'peek' at it.

If, while still holding down the WINKEY, you kept pressing 'V', that 'tool tip' would cycle through the items on the clipboard.

You could paste that item either by just pressing


or by clicking on the 'tool tip' displaying it.

(or perhaps it'd be better to display the 'tool tip' where the mouse pointer is, rather than near the cursor).
