Yeah, I think that's the best approach, to try and use a tree in there.
(a SvTreeList I suppose) because the amount of elements in the list is
just crazy, 30,000+ IIRC. Ideally on-demand loaded, e.g. tree is
collapsed and just shows, when you expand that, then only
then is the subtree inserted, and so on. So the full 30,000+ list isn't
actually in the widget, only the expanded portion.
