It will also clutter the file-chooser dialog and IMO that is a lot
worse than having it in a menu. I really don't see where in the
file-chooser it should go. There are already plenty of widgets, adding
even more won't make the dialog easier to use.

It can't be quick to use since you have to open a dialog first. This
contradicts itself.
