Excerpts from Gary Martin's message of Sat Oct 16 17:05:20 +0200 2010:

> FWIW, I'd vote for use of the regular Sugar alert strip that appears below the toolbar. Using floating window dialogues goes against the fullscreen Sugar design.

Dialogs are evil (especially, but not only if they're modal). I am barely
resisting (*) the temptation to rip out the WEP/WPA passphrase dialog.
Not only did I come across it during the cleanup series I'm preparing for
sugar, but it also caused Sugar to become unresponsive on my XO yet again:
Somehow this modal dialog was activated, but not raised to the top (and
with no way for the user to raise it).


(*) The only reason I'm resisting is that I want to finish other stuff
    first. ;)
