Today I have noticed that there are %c and %x substitutions for capture 
templates (thanks to the patch suggesting %L). With default preferences 
emacs listen to X clipboard and adds its contents to kill-ring, so 
current clipboard content is available as %c. %x at first tries primary 
selection. So there is no need to call gui-get-selection directly. By 
default both variants of selection are available through substitutions. 
If emacs is tuned to use primary selection, there is a compatibility 
function org-get-x-clipboard.
