A standard treeview doesn't work with a remote very well.

Currently, the only Qt widget that doesn't have a replacement (and that I want 
to use) is the line edit, and again, that doesn't work with a remote very 
well  - I'm going to be replacing it with the half integrated phone keypad 
popup that was submitted months ago.

A toolkit designed to be viewed on a monitor and controlled with a keyboard 
and mouse doesn't really translate very well to being viewed on a TV and 
controlled with a simple remote control.
