zsh copy and paste like emacs

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have noticed that zsh has a lot of things I see in emacs. I can make a selection with ctrl+space and selecting a region. I can make copies just like in emacs while I stay inside zsh. In emacs I'm able to use my system clipboard (previously with some additional configuration needed but this works out of the box now in emacs). In zsh I can't seem to paste from my clipboard using C-y and copying from zsh to my system cliipboard has the same issue. Is there a way around this? (HowTos)
