I'd like to be able to pipeline data in and out of the windows clipboard with powershell.
In addition, I would like a PSDrive representing the clipboard. This would be useful for integrating the clipboard with existing cmdlets that output to a file. For example, I could use such a PS Drive to write a csv to the clipboard with the Export-CSV cmdlet.

It would be useful if PowerShell added a smart "clip" dual alias like:
so we can do:
foo | clip
# foo | Set-Clipboard
clip | foo
# Get-Clipboard | foo
Looks like it is already implemented with Get-Clipboard/Set-Clipboard cmdlets.
