"Copy ID" context menu entry in selecion dialog

In using web-based analysis tools and other services, one often needs an object's ID (as simple text). This can be obtained by opening the object information dialog (via Ctrl+I), then marking and copying the number on the first line.

It would be nice if the object ID(s) were made available directly from the right-click menu of the selection dialog as "Copy object ID", copying the ID(s) to the system's clipboard.

This functionality may not be useful to everyone, so to avoid cluttering of JOSM's menus it might be sensible to add an option in JOSM's configuration to remove this menu entry. On the other hand, the selection dialog's context menu so far contains just five entries plus two separator lines. Decide for yourself.

(inspired by this thread on the German OSM forum)

Doesn't a simple [Ctrl]+[C] suffice to put the id of the selected objects in the clipboard?

Sorry, I should have realized myself that it is in fact so simple. You're perfectly right. Thanks for pointing it out.
