This is already implemented, but you have to click on "Background"
instead of "Ok" on the file operations dialog.  I think I will make
this the default for Gnome.  

It made some sort of sense in the text mdoe edition.  Actually, did it
ever make sense?  Oh, yes, it did, as originally we only had Ok, so I
guess Ok is stuck there for historical reasons, but we can drop this
from the GUI version.

Yep, this is more or less what gets done
