I use OpenExpert, too, and while I agree that it may not be 100% perfect, I don't find it a problem with those dialogs. You can drag'n'drop apps to it, too, for faster adding of applications. I did look for such a product for a long time, but until I found OpenExpert I was never really happy with any alternatives.
I'm trying to think of the app I used before OpenExpert, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. If I remember it, I'll post it and you can see if it suits your needs better (which I doubt, btw).
