Hi Christoph,
hi Astrid,
hi list,

OK, a first draft is available under: 
http://www.mapbender.org/index.php/Tree_GDE_2_redesign. I added this as 
a discussion point for next weeks IRC meeting.

Christoph, I hope you're not too disappointed when you see "my usage" of 
jquery :-) ... it's far less exciting than you might expect.
