Hmm.. it's unfortunate that it is this way.  The problem being that then
gnome gets automagic bookmarks etc, while people using only gtk have to
implement it on a per application basis.

This creates the possibility of having bookmarks (as an example) implemented
in different ways in different applications, and in an inconsistent way (for
the user).

I don't really know what the correct solution is, but I'd like to see
something consistent.

I personally think gnome should be using gmc for the file selection (via
CORBA) but that's another thing all together ;-)
