That's reasonable and it has been suggested before. Just needs someone
to write the patch for it. It's simple enough that the core developers
shouldn't have to deal with it. And that is probably why no one has done
it yet.

I am concerned that we are hiding important functionality here and that
most users will never figure out how to get the dialog in case they
should need it. But since even the UI team seems to suggest that we do
this change, we should probably do it all over the user interface then.
There are a few more places that use "Shift suppresses dialog".

Again, this should be rather simple and if Peter gives his OK, then we
just need someone to preparse some patches.
