*Bow*. I still ain't heard boo from any win9x users. Anyone that can lay
hand on a 9x machine and test this *before* we release the updated
version, would be doing me a favour.

Listviews aren't hierarchical. Treeviews suck. So C++ to the rescue. I
may wrap the end result in window messages at some point, but not being
a win32 windowing API wizzzard thats a low priority. As for
requirements, 95 +IE 4 is the minimum, and that wouldn't be a
showstopper IMO (but the functionality is :})
