TreeModel returns the same object, as compared by
equals, at two different indices under the same parent
than the resulting
TreePath objects will be considered equal
as well. Some implementations may assume that if two
TreePaths are equal, they identify the same node. If this
condition is not met, painting problems and other oddities may result.
In other words, if
getChild for a given parent returns
the same Object (as determined by
equals) problems may
result, and it is recommended you avoid doing this.

Returns the root of the tree. Returns
only if the tree has no nodes.

It is possible for this method to return

A directory in a filesystem, for example,
may contain no files; the node representing
the directory is not a leaf, but it also has no children.

Removes a listener previously added with

Messaged when the user has altered the value for the item identified
