[webkit-gtk] Custom paste handler for editable WebView

Without any input from me, an editable WebView will paste text into
itself when I press Ctrl-V. I don't know if this is handled entirely
within the WebView, or if the Gtk.Window contains a Ctrl-V accelerator
that sends a paste signal to the WebView. Regardless, I'd like to
provide a custom handler for this paste event, rather than relying on
the default one. Is this possible?
It is for other Gtk widgets, I know. For example, if I add this
handler to a Gtk.Entry:
entry.connect('paste-clipboard', lambda *args:
the paste doesn't happen. (I could query the clipboard and insert some
text into the Entry myself, of course.) But when I do that to a
WebView, it has no effect. The documentation suggests that there is a
paste-clipboard signal for the WebView, and I can trigger it manually.
How can I intercept it?
