 Quite often we need to email a link to a file on RackSpace CloudFiles,
 that's in a CloudFiles container. Since these could be large video files,
 giving them a link is the fastest most efficient thing to do.

 1. Under windows, CopyURL doesn't copy the URL to the clipboard so that it
 can be pasted.

 2. And if it does, it should be the external URL that is copied, and
 preferably the the CNAMEd URL if it exists.

 Currently the only option is to download file, because there is no way to
 highlight and copy the link, even though we can see it on the screen. So
 we have to resort to using FireUploader for that single function.

 So would be good if:
 A. The CopyURL worked

 B. And like it is in FireUploader, change the type of the control that any
 URLs are displayed in, in the Info Pop-up, can be highlighted with the
 <left><down> dragging of the mouse pointer, and then copying to the
 clipboard with <CTRL>C. This would allow the user to pick the URL they
 want to copy.

 C. If it it possible, show any CNAMEd URLs to the file, by reading the DNS
 system, using the new RackSpace API for that purpose.
