I don't know how other people approach this but I experiment a lot with
different renderers and symbols, tiny changes and how the affect. If I have
to change between layer properties and a separate symbol designer all the
time, I think I'd go crazy. It's already annoying me that I cannot interact
with the map while the properties dialog is open.

+1 for a tree structure.

Like the idea of symbol groups (aka themes). Not sure if it should be
symbol groups or style groups though. Style groups could prove too
