Fileselector Gadget

   Has anyone written a Mac-like fileselector gadget?

   I would like to do this:

     (accept 'pathname
	     :view  +gadget-dialog-view+)

   ... and a nice fileselector appears ...wishful thinking?

You may wish to call SELECT-FILE.

SELECT-FILE is a method on the application frame (so you can
specialize it).  The default method calls FRAME-MANAGER-SELECT-FILE.
Depending upon your platform, FRAME-MANAGER-SELECT-FILE may pop up a
window-system-specific file-selector.  In the LispWorks Beta CLIM 2,
it does call just such a file-selector.
