It actually reminds me of mangroves :-)

I am a very geometrical thinker and so I appreciated the picture.  
I would applaud any other efforts to represent things in diagrammatic
form - HenryT did a very useful diagram of 'pointers' for the WG.  The 
diagram lets me feel my way towards the solution (whereas some people are
capable of abstract thought).  Diagrams like this are useful for the
heavy demand we shall get for educational material.

Eliot Kimber has just written quite a lot on groves on c.t.s, which might
be helpful.
