Note that there _will_ be a new file selector in GTK+-2.4, which seems
to be the important thing for you; the subject under discussion is
whether GTK+-2.4 will be in 4 months, 6 months, or 8 months, and if
it isn't in 4 months, whether GNOME-2.4 will wait for it.
So, for an app developer, the only issue is a few months of schedule
one way or the other.
