Notice my remark again, "using the context menu of a file".  I said
nothing about the open dialog.  If files are to have context menus, and
it is my belief that they should, then they should be consistent.

And again, you statement is one of philosophy, and mine is purely
pragmatic.  Even a button to open gmc adds overhead to the process (time
to open a new window, etc).  My technique is efficient, and consistent.
