Tonight's nightly will have a new dialog `optionselect`. You can use it
like this:

      title = 'Language',
      informative_text = 'Check the languages you understand'
      items = {'English', 'French', 'German', 'Russian', 'Spanish'},
      select = {1, 3}, string_output = true

Documentation will be in the nightly's `doc/api/ui.dialogs.html` file.

This will be in 7.2.
