That's what gtk_dialog_set_alternative_button_order() was added for
and that's what GIMP is using (at least the development version that
is to be released as GIMP 2.4 when it is ready).
Using such an API is a reasonable amount of effort that we are willing
to pay in order to Win32 and KDE users happy. We are however not
going to turn our portable code into an unmaintainable mess by using
#ifdefs in order to use native file selection dialogs that don't
integrate with the rest of the application.
