Yes,yes :) I was not proposing any true API, just arguing that one can
abstract over a yesNoCancel dialog window, parametrizing it with the
verb to use on macos and kde3 to avoid a "yes/no" question.

This can be done in an rc-file abstaction as well, if we chose to have
haskell-specific resource files wich are translated to the appropriate
thing on all platforms. 

This does not solve the verb conjugation problem,indeed (how does apple
handle it in internationalization?)

If we chose to interpret rc-files of all platforms and not to have our,
this can't be done I suppose.

How does wxWin handle the "yesnocancel" issue on macos?
