The Finder's Clipboard & FCP's Clipboard

Here's something I just noticed.

When you have something copied to the clipboard from within FCP (at least with Snow Leopard) then you go to say, TextEdit and copy some text you'll have two different things in your clipboard.

If you goto TextEdit (or any text editor) you'll paste the text, then without copying anything new if you to FCP you'll paste what you copied from within FCP.

Maybe this is some feature that's been around that I'm unaware of but it's really handy.

There are multiple pasteboards in OS X (as opposed to just one in Windows, as far as I'm aware) and applications can create custom ones if they so wish. FCP must therefore be using its own pasteboard and not one of the general ones provided by Apple.
