This must be some strange new use of the phrase "quite impossible" of which
I was previously unaware.  A decade ago, there was a third party program
for the Amiga (called snipit) which would 'copy to the clipboard' text from
any window... before you say "easy" you should know that the entire display
on the Amiga was graphics.  Writing such a program for the PC (to display
the gif, then 'snip' the text) might be non-trivial, but the solution is
well known.
