Bingo. That's exactly what I meant — maybe my previous comment could have

I see value in having a stopgap measure implemented first, and then improving
on that. Also, if the widget used for alerts looks and behaves in the same as
the authentication dialog, we would be providing a more coherent user interface
(and that's a nice side effect!)
