Oh my... this is an amazing addition and exactly what I have done on my
own. Can't wait to help work out the details!
Not sure what you used as a key binding but I really liked 'Ctrl+Shirft+B'.
Which is very natural because you switch buffers with 'Ctrl+B'.

Also is there a way to use snapopen and control the width and height of the
dialog? I like to use the "ui.width - 20" so it fills the most it can
without looking like it covers all the gui.

 Thanks again for meaningful additions to Textadept.
