Yes, I would be so keen for this, especially in light of bug 12325.
Owen, do you have a branch for this sitting somewhere or even some tips? I'm hating on Greybox so much at the moment...

Since it seems we're already Bootstrap-ifying the staff client, I figure it might make more sense to go with Bootstrap now rather than jQueryUI.

I agree, but not sure how hard it would be. Do you need help?
