I'm thinking maybe the Filter option can actually be the second item 
under the View menu. It seems to be a fitting place to me, since the 
filtering is probably not important enough to be always displayed, and 
View is definitely the right menu for it to go in if it does go in a menu.

Well, the policy file is parse asynchronously when the editor opens, so 
if this doesn't complete first, then when the dialogs add a new 
codebase, it may not be the last one added. Since adding a new codebase 
automatically selects it, this could make it so that the current 
applet's codebase isn't actually selected. I'll start a new discussion 
thread for this, and another one for modality as well.
