This is because we need a higher z-index for inside modals than the
default for a bootstrap navbar.

Drag-drop reorder is planned. Keyboard reorder is interesting as there
is keyboard navigating to select.

The same, but it only allows you to select one.

These are (or are planned to be) options on the widget.  For example,
Nathan implemented the widget to select only images for tinymce.

You can point the widget at whatever view you want, so long as it
supports the same query options.
