Hi, well that's quite a solution. Might not be very sophisticated but perhaps is
the most pragmatic way. I have to check this out. The problem is that I have a
very dynamic datastructure and need to do all kind of lookups to grow it etc.
What I'm currently doing is creating a graph-layouter in Rebol. You can throw a
simple graph-structure at it and it will create a niche layout for you.
Traversing such graphs can become quite complex.

Yes, IMO that's the way to go. I would use the same or implement a simple
saver/loader that flattens the datastructure and recreates it on loading. Robert
