  Hi, Tim,

  Current implementation is missing some important features and hard
to use.  The fundamental idea can be great, I think.  (Alan mentioned
that Engelbert's NLS had the idea, too.)  Hierarachical file system is
some implementation detail to be hidden and being able to keep all
versions (which is missing from current Journal) would be great.

  Yes, this is the idea.  on a non-XO environment, we will show
conventional file dialog.  If you trace back the code for a few month,
you'll see that we used to show "conventional" (though redesigned)
file dialog.
