Ideally none. Creating a window with a standard buttons along the bottom
using Qt Creator gives you a subclass of QDialog, which is why we have a
lot of FooDialog classes in ui/qt. However, many (most?) of these should
behave more like independent windows.

No. This should be fixed in g80342e4.

Fixed in ga0498f1.
