I was always wondering, why I would need to have two objects for an item containing a subtree. Doing debugging I realized, that its one and the same object.
and both types (proto_tree/proto_item) origin in proto_node. That makes much more sense.

Any objection to use proto_item_append_text() passing proto_tree? It would simply my dissector quite a bit.
And are there any objections to even go one step further, and call everything a node my dissector?
