I think I'm missing something here. Where exactly are changes to
environment settings needed? As far as I can tell that may be needed for
running an executable (or debugging, which shouldn't differ from
running) and for building a project.

So the only case where one might want to have unified environment is
when multiple projects need the same environment. So we'd need a way to
make sure that the user can define this and then the widget should
update the related projects when changes are made in one. (or have that
as a button "propagate changes to related projects").
