While I agree that there are better ways to provide the "find" functionality
than using a dialog box, the dialog box approach is going to stay for a
while (for good or worse).

And, for all the find dialog boxes that we have now, it will be a good idea
to close them with Esc (I don't see any comment from Calum disagreeing with
this point).

Idem for the "About" dialog boxes.

I see the point of not wanting to bind Esc on dialog boxes where it may
potentially cause either:

1) cancel everything I've done with this dialog, or
2) just close the dialog

But when this ambiguity is not present, what's the argument against binding
the Esc key?
