Don't worry, this wasn't a lot of work, but a good opportunity to take a deeper look at how claws preferences work - I agree that a general purpose solution would be better - if I find the time I might work on this at some point, given I can get some support in case of questions.

(Z and Y are unfortunately an issue many developers don't consider - in claws this is clearly a minor issue since the functionality is not critical)
