Problem with Anjuta's Dialog and to an extent...GTK's default dialog...

Things Like

Should be in Context Menu...i.e Right Mouse on files...rather than a
button, which takes up screen real-estate for no reason. "Show Hidden"
Again Takes up too much screen real-estate. 

Anjuta still has the Dir/File structure...just like the GTK1.2, which is
old school..which should change to something like my design (dir and
files appear in the one pane) and can ordered in a number asc/des ways..

There is no history "Selection".

Anjuta's file dialog is more like a few extra icons up top, but not
really a big change from the same GTK file selector.
