 Can someone explain to me why wp_dropdown_pages still does not allow non-
 hierarchical post types? With Custom Post Types able to be set to page
 compatibility and non-hierarchical, this should be a non issue. I
 understand why in the past page types were hierarchical and post types
 were not. However, things have changed and there are use cases where non-
 hierarchical post types with the page compatibility are going to be used,
 and we as plugin developers are going to need to get a dropdown of page
 types that are non-hierarchical.

 Or perhaps a new function, wp_dropdown_posts(), should be considered. For
 now I guess I will have to create my own because I just have to have
 something that works.
