Hello Ivan, Krzysztof,

thanks for your input.

Unfortunately the text representation of the tree nodes is far more
complex than one might think, especially when it comes to the run-log,
where nodes can be displayed with variables expanded.

The text representation is used for the TreeCellRenderer, thus it must
be fast, otherwise scrolling the tree becomes a pain. I thought about
some kind of templating mechanism a long time ago, but that would most
likely be too complex with too little gain.

The remaining alternative is an option to toggle between short and
verbose tree display. It's a good idea and I'll look into it, but I'm
not promising anything. As always, the benefits will have to be
weighed against the other things we're currently working on :-).

Best regards,
    Greg
