Short answer: no.
If you are a skilled gtk programmer, you can provide a patch to change
the gimp to use the "common" one or to emulate its look. However, I am
not enough an expert to evaluate the possibility that it could integrate
well with the existing code (i.e. not break the linux/*BSD code). And I
am not sure the developers would be happy to maintain several "window"
layouts in the code.
There is not really any "common" open and save window under windows. My
notepad (MS program) open window is different from my Word (another MS
program) window. It is also different from the Matlab one or the Irfan
Viewer open window. Most of the applications provide their own window
most of the time. There seems to be a open window that is more often
used (at least under XP), so I guess you are taling about that one.
