	I don't know if Motif is a good solution. I would prefer
doing it with the new Gtk. It was first developped to make the
Gimp (an image tool) so would probably be able to do the job.
Also I'm a GPL addict ;-).

	The problem is to find hands. The sources of treetool are
not so well documented and are using specific Xview calls, but the
way things are done is clear.

	Anyone has the hands to do it? We would not be able to find
time before several months here...
