ok, Victhor and i have had a bit of a chat over the last hour and i've done a bit of quick work on a few things to see how it all might work. so....

the attachment shows the clear button using a bold font 'X' which should suffice for localisation needs and also conveys the need of the button. it could do with a bit of fine tuning to make the button more square (it still has the text specific padding applied at the moment).

additional multi-pane attachment shows the clear buttons without the text padding mentioned above.

the auto-select thing will be enabled by default for all skinned edit boxes (config option to disabled - behaviour will be default: on e.g. like explorer and all browsers seem to do). just need to sort out a place to pop it (probably on the w.i.p. 'appearance' preference page.

the cue text needs a bit of work (i'd hoped the skinning code was already in place to support it but it's not).

for the automatic hiding of the buttons as needed, i need to get around to implementing it, but it's a simple enough thing to do (especially after all of the work done to standardise how the layout handling is done when looking to apply it to the other native views).
