Btw, here is another problem that I wasn't aware of. I've integrated sofd into
my project (which was really easy), but now I see that I also need a way to get
a file save dialog. I guess since I already have my own ui toolkit with
buttons, comboboxes, scrollbars and so on, I will probably just implement my
own file dialog based on these widgets.
