Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Modal dialogs

As Stefan mentioned, it is not just a simple switch. First, a good/better UI has to be provided (also already mentioned by Stefan) and second, all the new cases that can now happen because the UI is no longer locked, need be handled by the code, e.g. files changed or deleted by the user before the user takes action on the message - lots of work!
I'm confused.
In another mail, Stefan says removing modal dialogs is easy and could work without any other changes. Improving UI would be a next iteration, more expensive one.

I have the impression that instead of splitting the topic in smaller actionable items, this discussion is adding layers of complexity and constraints that make it impossible to make any progress on this topic in an affordable way.
