I filed in FileDialogs-StartUsage.cs from the wiki page and took a quick look
at it. This makes a lot of sense now that I see it in use. There are quite a
few places in the image where these dialogs happen, and using the new ones
consistently seems like a very good improvement.

I do need to whine again about the class comment for FileChooserDialog, as it
provides a non-working example, so this still needs an update. It might help
also to just put examples into the method comments for #openOnSuffixList:label:
and #openOnPattern:label: to clarify the difference.

Overall, I like it and +1 for using these new dialogs in the image.
