Hi Sven,

I have a few nit-picky comments on your mockup:

- I don't think that frame inside "Debugger" tab is necessary.

- The way you composite sentence from labels and checkboxes on the
"Dependencies" tab is not great. Not just from i18n point of view
but it just looks wrong even in english.

- I am not thrilled about naming tabs "General" and "Advanced". Such names
don't tell user what to expect there. Maybe, "Executable" and "Environment"
would be more appropriate names?
