Perhaps then I am an android.  I look at that code and it takes me quite a
while to decide that the window-tree it produces (as I defined it) is (I

(nil #<methods> 0.15 #<sources> 0.3 (t #<history> 0.5 #<directories>))

...assuming that ecb-split-{ver,hor} is just C-x {2,3} with the divide
placed the argument fraction of the way {down,right} the original window. 
On the other hand I find interpreting the window-tree easy because I can
just read it rather than tracing through it.
