That's right - there is no clipping, in this form, in Tiny.

We'll take this as a feature request. My opinion is that it isn't 
to implement, although it isn't difficult to implement. The problem
is that when you're talking about such small devices, it really must
have a large benefit if it isn't trivial.

Having said that, I think clipping should be in Tiny.
