That's no solution. We often have trees with more than 100 nodes.
Before pruning or shrinking one wants to look at the max-trees ! It
all depends on the application.
We printed huge trees on DIN A0. That's no solution either - since
two months we have the windows-version of S-Plus 4.0, I guess this
will ease the print-problem.
