I feel that a much better way to render a Tree List field would be this:

There are only three things required to make this happen.

  1. Add an item into the core database to define the new field type
  2. Code for the field type
  3. A config file to wire it all up

You can grab the source code and standard Sitecore package here or on GitHub.

This is very cool. You should consider releasing it to shared source. As small as it is, it would be useful.
