Just to put a small spanner in the works, I noticed somebody mentioned
"writing good error messages" on IRC yesterday-- I think this is
actually really important and we should add a topic for this, as it

fit under "dialogs", if we only consider message boxes, or it might
deserve a heading of its own.  Any thoughts?

I have some ideas on this; I'd be happy to take it if nobody else wants it.

I think there are actually a couple of separate issues here. One is the issue of errors caused by erroneous user input; that _might_ fit more under "Dialogs." The other is system errors: network failures, hardware failures, etc., which I don't think fit well under Dialogs. I think system errors probably bear separation into a new topic, which I'd be happy to take.
