OK/Cancel buttons on Windows

Is there a setting in Xamarin Studio for Windows for putting the OK/Cancel buttons in its dialog boxes the correct way around for Windows users (OK | Cancel, or Yes | No, or Save | Close, or [Do it] | [Don't do it], etc.), according to the Windows UI style guide? I'm forever cancelling instead of OK-ing!

I realise dialog button order is Cancel | OK on a Mac, and I don't want to start a holy war (troll: Steve Jobs was wrong), but this is a silly little thing that is really frustrating to Windows users. Or am I alone in this? :-)

    It was private because it was targeted against the XS 4.0 UI refresh branch back when that was secret. I've made it public.
