Looks like a good start, and I do like that it's based on libmythui rather 
than the old code. =)

However, you're porting over the old UIManagedTreeListType, correct?  I would 
really prefer it if the basic tree type in libmythui were more like the old 
UIListTreeType (and so the new code would live on top of MythListButton), 
instead.  The API's much nicer/easier to use, and the intention was to 
deprecate the old ManagedTreeListType and not port that over to mythui.
