I do not agree that this would be desirable, or even a proper use of that
view. I also think that the two instances of using modal dialogs that you
cite are appropriate, especially the one that allows you to edit the
commit properties. The other dialog could be modeless but given its
purpose and use, I do not think it is worth it.
