Personally, I think making this switch would be awesome.  What would we 
have to do to get it in a future release?  It sounds like we just need 
to have some Windows users do some regression smoke testing on that 
branch using the other dialogs (what was that branch again...) and 
compiled to the newer GTK version?  Unfortunately for this process, I 
don't use windows anymore.
