Do you mean the tree below? Well - it doesn't hurt me. But if it went 
away (with a link to easily reach the tree from that page), I'd not protest.

It doesn't matter *for me*, because I don't use it anyway. But I can see 
how people might miss it.

I don't quite get that. Which information on that page requires to 
scroll down several pages in gitiles, which does not on cgit?

For me, double-clicking commit number in the address bar in Chrome on 
Windows (e.g., between b and f in the URL above), selects the commit ID 
without the trailing part. Well - of course, if the commit diff were 
right on that initial page without ^! (after the changed files list), 
I'd also not protest.
