i've taken a look at HtmlTree and it seems pretty much ok :)

there is one sentence in the doc comments which makes me a little 
concerned, though.

  * This example is designed after a Tree seen at <a href=
  * "http://sourceforge.net">SourceForge</a>.

people can get a little prickly about credit.
i bet i'm write in saying that you didn't use any existing code (correct?)

if you are going to give credit, you need to make sure you do it right. i'
d prefer something like 'inspired by' rather than 'design after' and i'd 
say that you need to be specific - either give the name of the author or 
the name of project  or an proper url to the particular project rather 
than a general one.
if you can't find out the exact details, then it's better to say nothing.

you don't need to submit any patches or a new version. just come back to 
me with what you think - i can edit my local copy before i commit it.
