4+ years since Quicksilver introduced this handy concept to the application launcher genre and not a one has implemented it (that I've found at least).
If you search the web for "comma trick" you'll find all sorts of requests for just about every application launcher asking for its equivalent and nobody has done it.
Maybe its just not as important as I think it is or maybe its really hard to implement. Whatever the case, I guess I'm sticking with Quicksilver for as long as it runs on my Mac or an app launcher in active development adds this feature.
I can see that you're somewhat frustrated ...
It might be worth having a try anyway, Launchbar does have a clipboard function. Personally, I find it too fiddly to be of any real use, but YMMV
Something that may be of interest to you though. Quicksilver's original creator now works for Google, and he's just released a new search thingy for the Mac. With a bit more work, it might evolve into QS2.
Good grief! You've already seen it haven't you! ....
