No, please do not do that!  PluggableListMorphOfMany2 was created
specifically for this browser so that a specific kind of nimble
interaction, which is shown and even explicitly mentioned in the youtube
video, would be possible.  Tree widget is how Pharo did it (I think, it's
been a while), and it was a plodding, confusing experience.  The design of
this browser really is driven by the UX and not the model.
