I want lines but like you mentioned ( http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/tickets/5481/
) that will take a bit more knowledge on my part.
Have uploaded the file HtreePedigreeView.tar.gz for Gramps 3.4.2 ( http://www.gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=6389 ) you can now just add the extracted directory to the user plugins directory and "H-Tree Pedigree" will show in the Navigator>Ancestry view. I will do no more changes for gramps34 and look attempting the same for gramps40 and trunk.
Benny I would like to commit the changes I have to gramps-addons if ok with you (The link on http://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Addons_development#Commit_your_changes
is gone due to http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/tickets/5481/

I do think the lines connecting a person to the parents are needed too. In a table that might be difficult to achieve though, although it does seem there is space to add them.
If you don't use a table, you directly draw on a surface boxes and lines, and you can draw everything then. See eg the fanchart in gramps40/trunk.
I see you work in windows, so I assume you use gramps34. The way of drawing completely changes when going to gramps40 due to the change from GTK 2 to 3. From that point of view, using gramps40 for complicated new views might be better :-)
