to reply to myself...  i've worked up the API for XfceFileChooser.  it's 
basically a subset of the 2.4 GtkFileChooser API.  i threw out some of 
the less useful stuff (the gtk_file_chooser_*_uri() functions, for 
example).  you can look at the header here:
let me know what you think.  i have it working for gtk 2.4.  it should 
work for 2.2 as well, though i haven't tested it.

depending on how i work out the addition of the file filter and preview 
widget stuff, i may need to make it a fully-fledged GtkWidget subclass, 
hence why i'm going to hold off on committing this until i have the 2.2 
portions worked out sanely.  the nice thing is, i've already written a 
filter-box addon for the gtk 2.2 filepicker, so i just need to figure 
out where it is and i can add it easily.
