First, I'm not 'the terracer plugin developer'. I just thought it could
benefit from some tweaks and started working on it. From the Trac
history I see there have been multiple developers but the plugin was
initially written by Matt Amos (who's not working on it anymore).
You can see the improvements I have in mind below, you should be able to
close the window using Enter in the future (which will behave the same
as OK (or Abschnitt)). Does that suit you?
Additional to the list below I plan to save the last choice for Even/Odd
between JOSM restarts and popups.

From this experience I have some wishes for the terracer plugin which
would greatly improve the usability when applied. I hope you don't mind

this is the default).

taging single houses as well):

non-symmetrical shapes (and there is nothing to terrace anyway).

then a link to the plugin code is appreciated and I'll attempt to create
a patch. Thanks in advance.
