i agree with this. and to extend: why have a set root node
at all? often i want to start my mindmaps at one of the
child nodes. as well as an 'insert child' function there
should be the ability to create unattached nodes, and any
top-level nodes should have an 'insert parent' option, and
connecting and disconnecting nodes to eachother should be a
lot more dynamic, maybe using control nodes/boxes as in
vector packages like freehand or visio.
this would truly make freemind a killer-app in my opinion.
