Xpra: Ticket #621: clipboard code should not compress in the UI thread, not assume zlib

Difficulty is that the clipboard knows nothing about compression feature availability, as it is not directly tied to a client connection, at least on the server. When a new client comes in, we just hand over the clipboard instance...

Also, it does not have access to the per-client encoding thread, which would be the ideal place for slotting the compression work...

Groundwork done in r7041, we no longer assume zlib.

Some ugly code remains in compressed_wrapper calls, but that is now well isolated and can be dealt with later.
