Looking really good! The browse functionality is a fair idiom in a  
such GUI as oppose to entering text, i think.

"One" comment: I have a beef with the functionality of the buttons.  
Not the Cancel one. The others. 'Apply' does something. 'Ok' does  
'apply' plus 'cancel'. 'Save...' does 'Apply' plus saves. But it says  
the list is only gonna work from next time Pd is lunched, why i don't  
get the 'Apply' and 'Ok'. 'Ok' should do save and cancel. Thats all  
one wants, anit?

I haven't checked your code but i suppose most "proc's" can be reused?
