We have to be able to change descriptors based on language and do a few 
other things that prevent us from using the static ones.  But the static 
ones look native and the QFileDialog doesn't.  Add to that the extreme 
slow functionality, at least on Windows and it's one of the few things 
from Qt that have caused problems for us, especially with our Windows 

At least it seems that Qt5 File Dialogs are supposed to be quicker...
