I've been following this particular issue and would prefer not to get
into an email-based discussion of why tonel/filetree came to be and
their relative disadvantages and advantages ...
However, I will be at ESUG in Cologne and would love to have a
discussion (at a whiteboard) with one or more members of the Cuis
community to talk things over and see if there is any common ground to
be found ...
