This is an excerpt from README:

By default, autocutsel synchronizes the CLIPBOARD selection. You may want to use the PRIMARY selection instead, if your applications use Motif or another toolkit not using the CLIPBOARD. To do that, simply run
autocutsel -selection PRIMARY

This implies that autocutsel only synchronizes one thing at a time. You can't synchronize one thing, just like you can't dig half a hole, nor can you divide one thing into groups, nor can you do half a twitch.

It would be nice if you would clarify what -selction <name> does.
