Hello Manfred,

and nice to know about other people's ongoing efforts! (I'm the SoC
student in charge of trees).

Well, I'm trying to keep everything as generic (and hopefully
extensible) as possible, but I have to admit that I haven't given that
much thought yet. As people point out in the other thread, isn't
multiple parent nodes something you'd rather want a graph library (like
the BGL) for? If not, I'd be glad if you could give me an idea about the
cases that might be interesting for trees...

There's boostsoc2006tree_at_[hidden], set up by my mentor, René
Rivera. I'd be glad about any input and/or share... ;-)
