well, i ment something more universal, like you would say open an "file
open dialog" in tcl/tk, and depending on the system tcl/tk is running,
it would open the native "open file dialog" of that system. all with
same code, hense the "universal open dialog api"...

but this would make an "open file dialog" ranked as an app, like zenity
or file/web-broswer or hmm, what are even "standard" apps that belong to
an operating system ? (ok, forget that)

well, im too long with open source, so my view of operating system is
maybe too wide and, eeh, open! :)
