bug#39103: 26.3; xclip.el 1.9 doesnt copy&paste under Wayland

Features:
 I'm using xclip.el version 1.9 (installed from ELPA) and I was fine with X11. I've recently switched to Sway (a window manager for Wayland) and xclip.el should support copy and paste out of the box, after configuring it to use wl-clipbaord.

 However I can't paste text snippets out of Emacs, I think because I can't set primary mode for wl-copy and wl-paste. Any suggestion on how to configure or fix xclip.el to do that?

 Here's what I do

 - Open a file into a buffer
 - Select a region and copy it with "M w" to copy it
 - Try to paste in another application that runs under Wayland of Xwayland (such as Firefox)

 From the cli, everything's fine:

 $ wl-copy -p heyhey
 $ wl-paste -p
 heyhey

 Also, inside Emacs copy&paste works fine.

 This is my current xclip.el config
