"Pop up a dialog box.
A dialog box description is a list.
- The first element of the list is a string to display in the dialog box.
- The rest of the elements are descriptions of the dialog box's buttons.
Each one is a vector of three elements:
- The first element is the text of the button.
- The second element is the `callback'.
- The third element is t or nil, whether this button is selectable.
If the `callback' of a button is a symbol, then it must name a command.
It will be invoked with `call-interactively'. If it is a list, then it is
evaluated with `eval'.
One (and only one) of the buttons may be `nil'. This marker means that all
following buttons should be flushright instead of flushleft.
The syntax, more precisely:
form := <something to pass to `eval'>
command := <a symbol or string, to pass to `call-interactively'>
callback := command | form
active-p := <t, nil, or a form to evaluate to decide whether this
button should be selectable>
name := <string>
partition := 'nil'
button := '[' name callback active-p ']'
dialog := '(' name [ button ]+ [ partition [ button ]+ ] ')'"
