No, I'm not touching the mythgallery code, just changing the "images" 
buttonlist in the theme slightly.

At the time I converted mythgallery I hadn't decided if the Yes/No/Ok dialogs 
were really needed or if the menu dialog would work. I'm now planning to add 
a dual purpose dialog for simple confirmation - Cancel + Ok with the Cancel 
button being shown only if it's required. I can do this tonight, it shouldn't 
take very long.

I'm trying to avoid creating an unnecessary number of dialogs, there were too 
many in the old UI. However where a particular dialog can be justified and is 
used in more than one place then I'll add it to the base.

I'm currently creating a file browsing dialog for looking up a file on the 
local filesystem and returning it's path.
