Even though I had already written snapopen, I was happy with using the
standard Gtk Filechooser since it has tab-completion and I know my
directory structure by memory. Once I was introduced to the idea of having
a key shortcut to snapopen a directory, I couldn't live without it.

In general I take the path of least resistance; if GTK provides me with a
filechooser, I'll use it regardless of what platform I am on. I wonder how
to call the native filechooser on OSX anyway...maybe I need to use
