And thank you, nautilus-actions is really useful :-)

I think proposal #2 would be best suited. Mostly because proposal #1
splits the required information to two tab panes.

Lets assign priorities, according to my understanding -- please
correct me if I'm wrong:
1. Nautilus Menu Item
1. Action
2. Appearance Conditions
3. Schemes

The items with priority 1 are things that you are required to fill in
to make the action work at all. Priority 2 are things that you
probably want to change, and priority 3 are things that you typically
would not change.

I think currently proposal #2 is the best one, but you might consider
making a 3rd proposal where you put the priority 1 items on one tab
and the other items on seperate tabs?

The only thing I don't like about proposal #2 is that it makes the
"Edit Schemes..." button appear as a child of the "Appearance
Conditions" header. Maybe it would make sense to use collapsable
