Does anyone know what the icon next to the spellchecker is for?

I have scripts in my Google Apps for domain account, and there's no such icon showing up. Moreover, the icon here appears in Google Docs, not Spreadsheet. I think it's look more like a smart clipboard icon (copy with/without formating, etc.).

I looked at the code to find a mention of a smart clipboard function and I found those deactivated features:

cloudboard
powerkey
modular_editor_js
comments
document_translation
cloudboard_native_integration
shelly_chrome

Do you guys know what they are/could be?

It looks like I was right...

<<Wintellect Cloudboard creates a clipboard that you can share across your machines and with other people. Cloudboard is a desktop WPF application that leverages Microsoft's Live Framework for storage and synchronization and is developed in C#.

Ever had to rely on thumb-drives or shared folders just so you could copy and paste things between machines? Do you ever wish that you could store more than just ONE thing in the system clipboard? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to see what you have in the clipboard rather than blindly pasting and having to undo?

Cloudboard is an easy-to-use, automatically-synchronized clipboard that does all of these things (and more!) by leveraging Microsoft's Live Mesh technology.>>
