[MlMt] Copy/paste word in mailmate

Hi all,

  To give some more solutions... you can also use a text expansion 
utility for that (Typinator, aText, TextExpander, Alfred, ...). For 
example, I'm using Typinator and by typing 'vv' I'm getting my clipboard 
in plain text.

However, if you prefer to simply use MailMate, I've built a Bundle that 
should do the same thing as those applications, but invoked directly 
from MailMate.

You can download it here: https://d.pr/f/U3oOv1

I have created two commands:

1. **Paste as plain text**: Which change your clipboard content to plain 
text and paste it to the front window
2. **Paste by typing**: Same thing, but doesn't change the content of 
the clipboard, it will type it as if you manually type the content

While creating them, I have added some keyboard shortcuts, but I'm not 
sure if it's a bug from MailMate, but on my side they are only invoked 
if I open the "Command > Paste (Extra)" menu item... If anyone tries it, 
maybe you can get back and let me know if the shortcuts work correctly 
on your side
