I cannot recall this specific point either. But the initial design goal is that
given a single type of "object we want to launch" -- for example "Native executable",
there are different launch modes (Debug, Profile), and each can be implemented by
different specific launchers -- all with their own configuration UI.

This model was not proved to be ideal, but was not found to be broken either ;-)
