Comment (by rq):

 John, the dialog now looks great and is indeed much more usable, thanks!

 May I suggest a further improvement? I think it would make more sense to
 swap the columns and turn Key Roles instead of Keys into dropdowns. This
 would prevent assignment conflicts (where two roles are assigned to same
 keys), yet would allow to assign same role for more than one key, if
 anyone for any reason would ever want that (you could still issue a
 warning if the user would try to save such settings, but it would be a
 warning, not an error).
