Actually, that's not the point of alternate button order support; the
point of the alternate button ordering setting in GTK+ is to be able
to create a GTK+ application that runs in a Windows or KDE environment
and has button ordering consistent with the platform, including for
the standard dialogs where the buttons are created by GTK+, not by the

I would consider it in poor taste for an app running within the GNOME
desktop to switch to the alternate button order; users are going to
be quite confused if some GTK+ apps running within GNOME have different
button orders for the standard dialogs than others.
