modal dialogs etc.

In current gnumeric if you invoke anything modal, the entire program
in the background gets "greyed out" until the modal task is completed.
I can see the logic of that, but is it really desirable?  I don't know
of any other programs that do this, and to me the flickering between
disabled and active for the main gnumeric window is a distraction.
In fact for quite a while I wondered what the heck was going on, as I
perceived this graphical switching out of the corner of my eye, before
I twigged to what was happening.
