Hmm, well, then file requesters should be really well abstracted (I am scared from some "hardwired" RT's solution). People will develop their custom solution if RT's not gonna be general enough. E.g. let's say someone is using custom design. Will there be the option to switch off borders, title bar, etc.? What about custom title bar with possibility of putting custom icons(actions) there? (look at allen's rebol forces site). It could be object based ... -pekr-
