the widget that is making the request.
The XtGetSelectionValues function is similar
to XtGetSelectionValue except that it takes a list of target types and
a list of client data and obtains the current value of the selection converted
to each of the targets. The effect is as if each target were specified in
a separate call to XtGetSelectionValue. The callback is called once with
the corresponding client data for each target. XtGetSelectionValues does
guarantee that all the conversions will use the same selection value because
the ownership of the selection cannot change in the middle of the list,
as would be when calling XtGetSelectionValue repeatedly.
