Thanks, it worked :)

If you want to test impulse maneuver support, I've published a new
snapshot with it :

Also, the date selector now automatically fills the fields with the
current date in the UTC time zone if no date was selected, meaning you
can fill the forms faster -- before, no time zone conversion was made
and the time scale was left unset. (I also added a Vector3D widget,
which is basically the conversion of the x/y/z entry seen in the Frame
conversion part (when it requests a position & velocity) in a
standalone widget so I could re-use it in the Impulse maneuver part,
but that's unnoticeable when you use the application)
