Fair enough - I just put it into List since it's only a few additional
lines of code, and I didn't want to have to copy-paste the existing List

You could do it with lists, I suppose.  Say you want to express a
typical hierarchical tree, like this:

Personal Mail

You could have a model like so:

	["Inbox", []],
	["Outbox", []],
	["Personal Mail", [
		["Joe", []],
		["Fred", []]
Where each item in the tree is a list made up of two objects: item,

Is that preferable?  It still doesn't seem like the most elegant way of
doing things.  Does anyone have a better idea?
