Data Source Manager: Switch "Close" and "Add" buttons

In most dialogs a button with an "positive" action like save/accept/OK/open appears on the left side of a button row, and "negative" actions like discharge/cancel/decline/close are arranged right.
In QGIS' "Data Source Manager" dialog the "Close" button is arranged left and the "Add" button is arranged right (centered). Intuitively I would expect the "Add" button on the left side, which makes me clicking "Close" instead of adding a new layer. Therefore I would suggest to switch the "Add" and the "Close button's position.
