The chief concern is breaking down exactly what the TreeBuilder is for,
and having a set of interfaces/implementations that reflect that.  I believe
that it would simplify the migration, future enhancements of the system.

Essentially what I was thinking was this:

The TreeBuilder as it stands is too complicated, and it seems to mix the
client concerns, internal use concerns, and processing concerns.

I would like to simplify it from a client perspective.  If I were to use
the TreeBuilder, I would assume that the configuration provided by the
container would point to all the <tree-builder/> definition files that
are needed by the system.  From there we need a way for the TreeBuilder
to access the proper.
