What exactly do you mean?
The Problem class stores information about 1 particular problem.
The ProblemStore stores, and (in case of FilteredProblemStore) filters, and groups multiple problems.

It creates instances of ProblemTreeView which show the problems in ProblemModel, and adds them to the tabs. Also the tabs shows the number of problems in the ProblemModels.

> - ProblemStore simply stores problems as a list (well technically it stores them in a tree, but it only has 1 level, so it's a list). There's no filtering, no grouping. It's perfect for ProblemReporterModel since it does filtering itself when grabbing the problems from DUChain.

> - Created a new Problem class, DetectedProblem. The intent here was to create a class with a clear interface for problems, which ProblemStore can simply store. Then I wanted to eventually replace the "old" Problem class with it. Then I realized that it's not practical because of the "show imports" feature. Which shows the problems from imported contexts. Unfortunately DUChain is the class that knows those, and it's way too much work to get it out from it. Not to mention it doesn't even make sense, since it's really something that logically belongs there.
