Would you elaborate a bit on that? I mean what exactly is the problem
with the tree models? And exactly which tree models are you talking
about? There are none in Qt itself, except for the QStandardItemModel
which allows to build tree's, but of course is not that suitable if you
have legacy code  that you want to wrap in Qt.
