[PATCH] GNOME 2: HIGify transfer dialog #2.

For the record, changing APIs can be a LOT of work.  You _must_
take into account not only callers in other C functions, but also
the potential for users from Scheme.  Changing the name of the
function is pretty easy to handle, but changing the calling convention
can require a LOT of grepping through scheme code.

Just keep this in mind in the future.  Sometimes it's better to leave
the function as it is, even if it's name isn't 100% accurate in terms
of what it does.  99% is "good enough".  :)
