Thats easy, provide some way of hashing the objects in your tree, then
use the hashnumber for the internal id. Often using id(yourobject) works
quite well as internal id. Then all you need is a dict using the id as
key and the real object as value, so you can easily look your object up.
Or maybe your internal data layout already orders the objects in some
way, then the searching through that tree might be efficiently possible
and you don't need the dict at all. I don't have a pyqt source tree
here, but I think the tree model example uses internalId for storing and
identifier for each object.
