The List view should be converted to an Outline view (which is
essentially a Tree view with multiple columns with a possibly-changing
root instead of always rooted at '/'). I don't think I'm adding
anything original by saying this though.

If we had an Outline view I don't know if it would still make sense ot
have the Tree view. I guess it would still be useful as a side view to
navigate while looking at things in the main view.

I also wish the Tree view had a better name. Tree is such a nerdy term
that focuses more on the implenentation that the actual UI and purpose
of the feature. Can anyone thing of a better name? The best I can come
up with is "System Outline" which is way too wordy.
