I think something along these lines would be an excellent option:

a copy button above right corner in code block

Having a copy button means:

  • I get all the text in the code block
  • I don't have to click/drag the full length of the text
  • Automatically copied to clipboard

I don't know why people would be against this small piece of added functionality. It makes sense to have a copy button. I certainly don't expect this comfort control to take priority but an official word on whether it will be considered would be nice.

Update & Alternative
I have learned that this functionality simply will not be implemented due to security concerns.

An alternative that I would not mind having would be an "Email me teh codez" button. One click, done! Now I have a somewhat permanent record of the code which I can organize in mail folders and copy at any time.
