This goes out of topic.... nevertheless:

I like broken's proposal for an improved fileselector. Our system has  
all kinds of nice features I don't want to give up. Apart from that,  
for me most important still is to keep a consistant single-window  
subdivide interface working.

With no dependencies for menus, guis, widgets, selectors, etc. to  
specific OS's, Blender is weird, but it allows an intersting freedom as  
well. A review on that topic can best be done for a 3.0 design, but I'm  
sure the opinions will differ among people a lot!
