Can you post this portion of their patch, so we can see how they did

(Presumably the static-function approach, again.)

Maybe we could offer a static function that modally calls the
platform-specific file dialog and offers very few features, and then a
separate filesel API that always calls GTK-native.  That's some amount
of ugliness but perhaps addresses real user needs, and it's only a
static function or two worth of ugliness.
