Although my primary terminal is xterm (IMHO the only terminal where UTF-8 is real and where I can enter russian text resonably well), when I need to cut and paste, I use shell window in emacs.
For text selection I prefer to use keyboard and since AFAIK there is no terminal emulator that allows to select program output using only keyboard, emacs or any other editor with a shell support is the only option.
