Yes and no:  the "sheet" effect only works on OS X where that's the 
convention, but using the "as sheet" option on Windows (and Linux too 
IIRC) causes the dialog to open as document-modal; that is, modal to the 
toplevel window at the time the dialog was invoked, while the user is 
still being able to interact with other toplevel windows.
