+1.  I actually started tinkering with making it a treeview in Glade, 
since it makes way more sense to not have a hardcoded number and types 
of build commands, but of course as we discussed before, there needs to 
be a fixed number of commands at startup due to the limitations in the 
keybinding system.

Anyway, for now, we could add the whole UI into Glade except the dynamic 
part and just append/insert rows for more commands at run-time for the 
parts that change.  At least 95% of it would go into the UI file.
