It depends on whether you want other GtkDialog behaviors (stay on top
of parent window, has buttons on the bottom, skip tasklist, etc.)

Hardcoding this stuff in apps is just too broken; I don't think apps
should try to conform to window types in the HIG until there's a sane
API that automatically does the right thing. Until then I'd just pick
whichever of GtkDialog/GtkWindow is closest.
