Multi-line pasting should correct the indentation of the pasted lines.

It doesn't seem to be running the on-the-fly formatter right now, but even when that's fixed it maybe could have a dumb implementation anyway, for other languages. E.g.
1. If not pasting at the beginning of a line
2. Take text from clipboard
3. Remove common indent from all lines.
4. If the first line has no indent but the following line does, assume its indent was already omitted from the selection, and only remove common indent from the other lines.
5. Get indent from paste location, prepend to all lines except first line and blank lines.

Setting it to high since it's a regression.
