The gnome-enhanced dialog might in particular contain mime-type icons, 
something that I suspect will never be implemented in gtk+.

The implementation could be selected from .gtkrc for example.

But could people agree on an API? Well, I think so if we use the
property stuff of GObject for optional features:

if (filesel->has_feature("glob-filter")) 
	g_object_set(filesel, "glob-filter", "*.xml");

Some standard optional features could be:

select-directory  - Only allow directories to be selected)
select-multiple - Allow multiple files to be selected
flat-directory-view - Like [win/g]cvs. Javacoders will like this
only-existing - Only allow selection of existing files
