Hi Ralf -

Thanks for the feedback. One note, when running from master, I am not
seeing the "Code" menu (Ubuntu 16.04 / KDE 5). Is there perhaps a build or
run option that I am missing?

4.5 Review proposed design / implementation approach.

Sounds good.

I'll certainly take a look at what is there.
