Well, the extra time it takes is the time to hit the return key, since Okay is
the default response.

Anyway, I'll add an anecdote.  One of the plug-ins that don't use a dialog is
Gradient Map.  So, exploring the Gimp universe, I came across this one
in the menu, and thought "hmm, what does this do?", and tried it.  It
converted my image to grayscale!  I thought that was a bit odd, since 
there was already a much easier way to convert an image to grayscale.

The only way I could figure out what Gradient Map did was to read the
source code.
