  1. open an existing file
  2. open a new (non existant) file
  3. save to an existing file
  4. save to a new file

1, 3 and 4 is handeled by GtkFileChooser, but 2 is done poorly, it
requires hitting Ctrl-L and getting another dialog that has its own

I don't think (2) can be implemented at all. It is guaranteed that the
filename returned from a file-chooser in OPEN mode points to an
existing file. This could probably be handled by extending the API to
allow for a new mode (GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SELECT). Please submit a
bug report for this API addition.
