I've noticed :-)
I'm not sure this is a good solution in this case - there are already
quite many options on the "Revision" and "Options" pages, so if these
were moved to a single "Advanced" page I'm afraid the result could be
confusing. One approach could be to move the Port and Parameters fields
to the "Options" page - I'm not sure if this would be intuitive, however.
