Hierarchical menus, Explorer-style navigation?  Microsoft calls it a
"Tree-view" control.  Apple calls theirs a "Finder" ...all of which just
goes to show you: What's in a name?

If his client wants twisty navigation, and he knows what the hell the
guy is talking about... he'll have one more client than I will.  I
would've been giving the guy the glassy-eyed stare, wondering whether
twisty navigation meant curvy, convoluted, rotating DNA strand
navigation or what :-)
