I don't think anyone was rude, but email is a funny thing. :)

The proposal was met with several questions concerning the design of
the implementation, and none of the more important ones were really
answered well. The conversation veered into what should and shouldn't
be done by a KTreeView, (namely a reimplementation of an Apple design
widget) and then the conversation sort of dropped off.

I think many of the people asking questions (myself included) were
just questioning the need for a KTreeView since there is a QTreeWidget
