Actually one treeview would be better, but I think the error regex 
fields would need to be separate from the tree. Perhaps grouped 
underneath it. It could look something like:

Current filetype: C

    Label      Command            Directory     Reset
    -----      -------            ---------     -----
\/ Filetype build commands
\/ Independent build commands
\/ Execute commands

Error regular expressions:
   Filetype:    [                ]
   Independent: [                ]

I've added a label for current filetype above (this could be done 
separately). This is to avoid repeating the filetype name in multiple 
places, and I think it's clearer.
