File selection dialog


I have some ideas about improving the gnome file selection dialog.
A lot of gnome programs have bad file selection dialogs; thinks that
don't work:

* when entering a directory by hand it doesn't change to that directory,
instead says
	it can't open file

* every time it opens it is in the current directory, instead of the
last one it used
	(by open/save, doesn't matter)

* some remember the last directory, but only until restarted

* allow for filtering (*.html)

* a button for refresh listing

What if the default gnome file selection dialog provides these ? The
problem is
about remembering directory for each application; try writing in the
conf file
for that application (~/.gnome/file) an entry
file_selection_dialog_directory ?
