Ok, I spoke a bit too soon.

A recent change now gives a native file dialog on Mac (and a standard Qt dialog on X11), also when opening a project. This was one of the few occasions where I never felt like using a native dialog, because the KDE dialog had a number of useful features:

- treats symlinks to directories like directories so you can use the expander instead of having to follow the symlink
- very important: it allows to select the Makefile/.pro file/CMake file/.kdev4 file you want to open. The Mac native dialog doesn't (which isn't to say that it cannot).

What commit is this part of? If it's a dedicated commit I overlooked it...
