I should my mouth/fingers closed/still when GTK3 is on the table.

Sorry for the noise. This warning seems unfortunate though. GtkDialog
is a useful class and doesn't inherently need a parent. Does it?

Using transient-parent on OS X is a very bad idea, and it really buys
nothing with tiled WM's either. It is very regrettable that X (and its
successors) have not implemented a more sophisticated app-centric
window layering model.
