please, don't continue to do the same mistake over and over again.
A toolkit should not provide dialogs for special purposes. It should

function that creates a dialog with the widget packed into it, but
please provide a way to create the standalone widget.

This mistake has been done before (see GtkInputDialog and
GtkFileSelection) and it has bitten us (the GIMP developers) every so
