Looks nice, but I don't like the Details... expander. User like me will
_always_ click it, just because I'm curious what is hidden there, or to
make sure, if there's not some important setting that has wrong value
and I need to change it. So that's one more click for me every time.

There's a lot of free space on that screen, so why don't we show all the
values at once?

Also the labels that change to buttons only when clicked are very nice
to look at, but will everybody know that they can actually click it to
change the value? This changes the well known widgets behavior so I'm
afraid if we will not confuse people.
