Mmm... yes? no?

It's just that when a class A inherits a class B, its tree item parent 
is the class B item, not its parent directory item.

And the tree is filled in two passes. The second pass allows to insert 
child classes there were not inserted first because its parent was not 
yet inserted in the tree.
