Not quite. All the OK/Cancel dialogs are all unchanged. It's the
"save/discard/cancel" MessageBoxes that now have the native ordering.
The old ordering was save/discard/cancel everywhere and the new ordering
is the same as the old for windows and kde, while for MacOSX and GNOME
it's "discard/cancel/save" e.g. the warning dialog you get from
attempting to close a document with changes.

If there are any other discard/cancel/save dialogs around where the
ordering is inconsistent between dialogs let me know and I'll fix them
up to use the new mechanism.
