New MCS dialog won't work with plenty of plugins

Hmm, my only counter argument is that when we get that many items, we 
should probably have categories and tabs.

Btw, it does expand quite naturally I think (number of columns is square 
root of number of items), so you should be able to fit quite a lot of 
items in it.

Also, by the time we have that many dialogs people will have 35" screens 
;-) But, seriously, I didn't have a good reason for the change, I just 
thought it looked prettier.

I can put the old one back, if you want.
