Hi all,

since I lack some time ... could anybody pick this up and work out a
straightforward proposal? That would be cool!

Personally, I don't know what the technical constraints are, so you
might need to ask the developers what kind of information is available
by the filters (their capabilities, e.g. "I'm a pixel graphics filter.")

That is some OOo heritage. Indeed, sort order is without any cognizable order
and too long. 

There should be sort order and a preselector "show only xyz documents" for
particular file types leaving an option to see the complete list.

Have there ever been thoughts concerning this dialog?
