For the record, tree chains is designed to be a soft-fork upgrade to bitcoin, 
at least if we can get the economics to work out. Assuming it does, you would 
do this by defining bitcoin itself to be the top level chain, and carrying what 
appear to be anyone can spend txouts from block to block so that transaction 
outputs can be created when funds are redeemed in the top block chain from 
children lower in the tree. Very similar ideas as the chain to chain stuff via 
spv proofs that Mark and Adam were talking about here earlier, although I think 
the order and reorganisation guarantees is a big advantage over their unsynched 
chain model. Most of the other ideas are identical, and they deserve credit.

I'm on the currency design panel at the Princeton Bitcoin Research Conference 
this week - tree chains will be discussed informally if not on the panel itself.

Regarding cryptocurrency research related posts, the feedback I've gotten has 
always been quite positive. You are in the minority as far as I can tell, and 
anyway the volume of such posts is a small part of the total list volume.

As for the rest of your email, doctor, heal thyself. Gavin's constant 
namecalling of legit and well accepted scaling concerns as FUD has irritated 
many people for over a year now,  among many other things. Statements similar 
to what you claim are said about me are also often said to me about you and 

But anyway, reply off list please.
