Yes, but then

1) The new modal dialog is a subdialog of the orignal one with the
corresponding nesting of the main loops.  You want to hide a modal
dialog when it pops up a `child'?  Maybe this was not considered to be
sensible scenario by Gtk+ devs (or simply was not considered).  To me it
sounds a bit fishy.

2) The new modal dialog is not a subdialog of the original one.  Then
you got into a logical contradiction as each of the modal dialogs should
block the other (visible or not).
