No, I think we are agreeing here Petr. In HTML forms there is the file field, which shows the native file lister for the system that the browser is running on. I think we should be able to call the native file browser from View just like using any of the other prefab dialogs that will be in VID. But then again, if each of these components is purely in VID style, it makes it easier to use View and VID as the basis of a standardised REBOL/OS..
