Thanks, Justin! It's so cool to see another XP dialog implemented. It's
been quite a while since we've had such a prominent user-visible change to
the UI, and this is an especially nice one to have. :-)

One of the disadvantages of using XP makefiles is that it forces you to stub
in the platform-specific implementations, or else the other platforms won't
build. However, this is also an advantage, because it gives you the
opportunity to leave comments explaining what your XP implementation

For example, see what Shaw did with the Zoom dialog.

It's best to stub them. That way the translators have an English string in
place to translate, and will have less difficulty creating the patch.
