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.
