So I guess there's nothing to be done here in this bug report, and I'm
therefore closing it.

Not "can", "may".

Of course.  What other kind of list could be alluded to in the ELisp
manual?

MS Windows doesn't support selections at all, it only supports the
clipboard.

It's hard to clarify what the manual says because this is not
implemented yet in Emacs, see xselect.c (search for QMULTIPLE).

In a nutshell, this is something we hope will be implemented some day,
and if so, probably only for X selections.

The doc string and (elisp) `Low-Level Kill Ring' say that the function
value of this var can return a "list of strings", to support window
systems that support multiple selections.

Is this a Lisp list of file-name strings?  What kind of multiselection
in MS Windows would result in such a list being obtained and returned
by the function value of the var?

I tried this in Windows Explorer, thinking that it might give me such a
list:

 1. Select all files in a folder (`C-a').  Or use Control + click to
    select several files.
 2. Shift + right-click and choose `Copy as Path'.

But (funcall interprogram-paste-function) then returns a string that's
the contatenation of the (absolute) file names, with each name enclosed
in " chars and with those double-quoted names separated by newline chars.

Is that what was meant by a "list of strings"?  I'm guessing no, and
that some method of obtaining a Lisp list of strings from multiselection
of file names is intended.  But what method, for example?

And if that really was what was meant by a "list of strings" then maybe
that doc could be clarified, because the way it is now I expected a Lisp
list of strings that are (absolute) file names.
