The tree selector on mozilla-central in MXR lets me switch to a whole bunch of trees but NOT comm-central.

The one on comm-central doesn't let me switch to anything.

This is kinda odd.
I was looking at xpfe tabbrowser.xml, which has the whole "being pulled from mozilla-central into comm-central" thing going on.  So never mind me, please.

tree switching will only work if the paths are compatible, if they aren't, i'm sorry :(.

A. i could probably at the expense of one extra stat per tree fix this, but it'd be a one way thing.

B. a cheaper version would be to let you tree switch from

[tree]/firstdir/path to:
[firstdir]/path.

it wouldn't tree switch quite the way you want. but it would let you land in the mozilla [cvs] tree. and wouldn't cost me anywhere near as much.

C. doing that is kinda asking for a reversible one, which is basically one extra stat the other way:

[tree]/path => [othertree]/tree/path

which again is one stat per treename.

i'd play with this, but sadly my sandbox just got deleted. and i need to fix that first.
