I would like to request the expanded save as dialog patch as a use flag for x11-libs/gtk+ It is a feature that has many times been reported to the gnome bugzilla, but they continue to deny the users requests. It is a rather simple patch.
The patch (works as of 2.10.6)

save as patch
Most up to date but still only works for open dialog as of 2.10
I sure have made a muck of this bug, my apologies. The posted patch is more proper to 2.10.6, but both only affect the open dialog. Since the change to 2.10 these patches do not seem to effect the save as dialog as well.
I am not a programmer so I don't know how to fix these now broken patches. I will close this bug.
I will try to get in contact with the guy that wrote the original patch that I derived these from. If this is an enhancement that may be considered I will return with the proper patch... or perhaps one of you brilliant gentleman can figure it out ;)
screw it, I've had enough of gnome, I'm moving to kde
