But i think providing a similar interface doesn't mean that file dialogs 
have to be written in the same toolkit. I have heard there are plans to 
have a Button-Order flag through XSETTINGS and probably there could also 
be a  File-Dialog-Style "hint". There is no need for absolute 
perfectionism and no need to rush either - the data-model should be 
fixed first...
