Hi, all,

I'm renewing my request for ui_setup_open_button_callback to be made 
available for the plugins. By the time I first requested it, there were 
plugins with their own versions (inferior - no native Win32 dialogs), 
and currently, it seems that geanylua, spellcheck and scope imitate it.

To save you some browsing of the mailing list archives, the following 
points were raised at the time:

"GtkFileChooserButton should be used" - however, Scope requires file and 
directory names which may not exist at the moment of choice, and if 
memory serves me, the file chooser button / dialog does not support 
names in $PATH either.

"It should be properly g-object-ified" - well, nobody was willing to do 
that, much less add Glade support.

(@Matthew: yes, I have plans to use it, had them from >= 2 years. :) 
Currently, my hope is to use it from the stable 1.25 release, if 
possible, or whenever it becomes available.)

There are other things I need, but let's see how this will it turn out...

E-gards: Jimmy
