I wasn't sure what to do as this variable only exists for some GTK versions.
For GTK 2.0 and 2.2 it doesn't make any sense (the new dialog does not
exist), and for non-GTK versions it is also without use.  I didn't want
the variable to exist if the GTK version didn't have two file dialogs,
as the old one will eventually go away.  Is there a policy for these
kind of variables (i.e. not only platform specific, but also toolkit version
