It's not premature, but we probably won't nail down "the" answer yet.
I've already got mockups and more, but there are some corner cases I
don't know the answers for.

Activities can just use GtkFileChooser.  Someone should write an
adapter to bridge for activities which expect the old Journal
interface, but I'm not quite ready to start working on that yet.
Maybe in a week or two.

Anyway, we can discuss this more tomorrow am.  I'll be in at work
tomorrow am; poke me or one of the early risers on IRC (pgf, erikg,
etc) if I don't remember to log in, tune in, etc.
