The file dialog is Tk's built-in one and i don't think you can change much 
in it.

However it could be rewritten so that it gets a sane presentation, and I
mean anything like Motif or Gtk or Qt: vertical scrollbar (not 
horizontal), user-defined filename filters, 

Else I'm going to write a new file dialog for the DesireData project
within the next month, which could easily be backported to PucketteData.

oh, and Tcl/Tk is so easy to learn compared to C, so if Kyle wants to give
the file dialog coding a try it would be cool cause I would be able to
concentrate on the 666 other things on my TODO list.
