Excellent. Will test more tomorrow. A few things:
* visible property is not read or written properly.
* can't edit separators, title or quit
* you shouldn't show confirmation dialog when there are no changes to be
* 'Are you sure you want to quit?' -> No -> oops, window gone, program
still running ;-)

Show the filename, I think. Usually included files will have been
generated by some utility and you don't want to edit them manually.
Perhaps an option to edit that file (in a second instance of the
program?), but that's not too important.
