People are already asking these questions - I linked to the patches a
couple of hours ago.

Similarly people are working on the other things you mentioned - but
you haven't referenced any of that work in your e-mails to this list,
so it's impossible to tell if you're familiar with it or not:

menu system rewrite for Drupal 6 and the tree parsing patch for D7.
Also http://drupal.org/project/leftandright and
http://drupal.org/project/lineage in contrib

So if you know everything there is to know about all of these efforts
(and others which I didn't mention) - presumably you could explain how
you evaluated and rejected them already?
