I think he's talking about plugin's dialogs (I'm right?). GdalTools, SPIT (and maybe other core plugins) use a custom dialog to handle encoding.
I agree that displaying different and ugly dialogs is bad, but is it better than have encoding combobox out of it?
Anyway, in GdalTools I can move the encoding combobox out of the file dialog (like Add Vector Layer dialog).
The same could be done in SPIT moving the encoding to a new column (after the filename one).
I don't remember where the custom dialog with the "Cancel All" button is used so I cannot propose any valid alternative for it.

On Windows perhaps a bigger issue is that the QT dialog "takes forever and a half (approximately) before it shows the files in the directory" (quote from #3763)
(and maybe other core plugins)
