Ohm, ohm, ohm...

Well, maybe there should be :extend-width/:extend-height?
Aesthetically, at times it is nice to "spread" items out across the
available space such as when laying out menu items equally across the
available horizontal space.

Well, maybe no one thought to ask?

Eh?  When accepting clim:pathname, inside an accepting-values I don't
get the "Motif" file chooser, I get the normal CLIM thing (a text line
to type at).  I presume that the Motif file chooser is the widget that
allows you to walk through the file system heirarchy picking
