It would be nice if the tree module would remember the
number of generations that i filled in. Even if I browse up
with the arrow. It is a little bit annoying that it always
changes back to three.

    Well, I thought about that and it depends on whether you
    always want to view more generations or it's just something
    you do infrequently. Maybe we need a pgv_tree table that
    stores the default # of generations (e.g. you always want to
    display 4 gen.) If you have several gen. in succession that
    have large #s of children, it can be "dangerous" to display
    more than 3 or 4 gen. You can easily get huge tables that
    take a long time to display. Might need an additional var that
    limits the table size to a max. # of individuals.

    The default of 3 is ok with me.....
    Just when during a session I put it to 4 or 5 and use the
    arrow to browse up, it would be nice if it stayed at 4 or 5
    (next screen)
