Here is a rudimentary patch to make the "do you want to quit without saving?"
dialog better and more compliant to the gnome human interface guidelines.

<jmd> Personally, I prefer the "Yes" and "No" stock items.
<nekohayo> why? I can only see downsides such as the conditionned window user
that blindly clicks Yes. Yes/No dialogs are to be avoided like the pest
because of their lack of meaning. The windows ecosystem that basically spams
you dozens of times per day with silly Yes/no dialogs is a side-effect of
that. Heck, even the HIG has a section on this :)

<jmd> ok.  Raise a bug about this then.
