I strongly disagree with this point, the original load/save dialogs 
should be kept as the default. As they match the original games (the aim 
of the project), and make use of the original interface of each game. A 
lot of work went into supporting the original load/save/option dialogs 
of each game engine too.

A common keyboard shortcut should be enough, for people which want to 
use the GMM across all possible game engines.
