*Description*
-------------
The tree lists in Base's main application window, now support
selecting entries by typing their name.

This "select as you type" :) feature works pretty much like the same
feature in normal list boxes (in fact, the implementation for the
latter has simply been outsourced, abstracted, and applied to tree
lists), i.e.:
- typing some letters will select the entry which starts with those
letters
- typing the same letter repeatedly will cycle through the entries
which start
  with this letter, assuming there is no single entry which starts with
  multiple occurrences of it
- the internal search string, assembled by the characters you type, is
reset
  after a small amount of time of inactivity
- selecting entries by other means than the quick search (e.g. the
keyboard
  or the mouse) also resets the internal search string
