of course nothing, but it seems fine to concede this as long as its
clear that a dialogue should be instant apply unless there's a specific
reason for it not to be, and we should be pushing to try and make more
and more dialogues instant apply (fixing the issues that make that not
feasible today, for example if switching themes took half a second it
could be instant apply, etc).
