AW: CEDET update

i'm the maintainer of ECB and therefore also for tree-buffer.el... as the 
naming already expresses, tree-buffer.el is independent from ECB (the name 
doesn' start with ecb-) though it has been developed primarly for ECB - but is 
contains NO dependency to ECB and AFAIK ;-) and also no advices - it simply is 
a library which allows displaying arbitrary stuff in a tree-structure... is can 
display the tree completey in ascii-manner (e.g. [+] for an expand-symbol) but 
it is much nicer when using images for this...

Well, back to topic: It you like it you can integrate tree-buffer.el into Emacs 
as stand-alone lib... (when images should be used you can also integrate the 
images of ECB)...

But, i still have not signed any papers - but if you tell me what i have to do, 
where i can get them etc.. , then i can do it...

best regards

You've not answered my question: does CEDET have something similar?

Which might make it more important for the GDB Graphical Interface not to
use the speedbar.

The file tree-buffer.el is 168k and appears to be self contained. CEDET seems
to be fifty times bigger.  As for causing "indigestion", it brings
Mr. Creosote to mind:

"Just one more wafer-thin mint, sir?"
