>>Why "modeless" instead of modal dialogs?

Alan, David, et al:

My initial thought was to use modal dialogs, as one goal is to 
prevent the user from visiting other portions of the app until the 
input process is completed.

OTOH, a modeless dialog would allow the user to, for example, 
copy/paste text/numbers from a word processor/calculator app into the 
field, no?

If I were designing a generalized approach, I would be inclined to 
make the mode selectable at runtime.
