Specifies the callback procedure that is to be called when the selection value has been obtained.
Specifies the argument that is to be passed to the specified procedure
when it is called.
Specifies the client data (one for each target type)
that is passed to the callback procedure when it is called for that target.

function requests the value of the selection that has been converted to

in fact, it may be called before or after
function is similar to
except that it takes a list of target types and a list of client data
and obtains the current value of the selection converted to each of the targets.
The effect is as if each target were specified in a separate call to
The callback is called once with the corresponding client data for each target.
does guarantee that all the conversions will use the same selection value
because the ownership of the selection cannot change in the middle of the list,
