Auto-paste clipboard URL when adding a channel, please

If you have an URL in clipboard when adding a news channel, it'd be nice if it's automatically pasted in the "Channel URL" field.

Thanks for a really nice reader! :)

If clipboard has something looks like a feed url, GreatNews will actually auto-paste it into Add Channel dialog. But sometimes it may miss because there's no reliable way to tell if it's a feed url or not.

Ah, I notice that now. :oops: However, many feeds (URLs) I manage don't end with ".xml", so maybe it'd better if all clipboard contents starting with "http://" should be auto-pasted.

I'm going to enhance the Add Channel dialog so that it can also parse html to find feed urls. When it's done I will auto-paste all URLs
