|I think the question posed is "Is there a better way?"|
Personally I often use the mouse to copy and paste from Vim to X apps, because I don't know of a better way. For example, it doesn't work when your text is not all in view...when scrolling the text is deselected, so I copy, paste, scroll, copy, paste.
If we had a gui version, we could add a scroll bar (set guioptions+=r) and copy more than text in view. It's rare that I have to this, however,
and I'm happy that I found a way to turn the line numbers on and off.
