OK, so you're not the person who presumably chose to use this widget in the
first place, but can you offer any insight into why _anybody_ would choose
to use a non-standard file dialog?  It bugs the heck out of me when I go
into a "Save" dialog and discover that it can't do all of the normal
features - view the files, change between view modes, _delete_ files or
directories if I choose (I very often do this in a standard file dialog - I
delete junk when it comes to my attention, which is frequently only when
I'm saving something else there).
