(and the tcl language) which does have the pieces to build in the
expandable/drill down interface.  One implementation of this is the
TkListView function in the TeachingDemos package which can be used to
view list objects in this manner (it starts with the top level list

whether anyone looks at them or not).

Another option would be to start with TkListView and rewrite it to do
things more dynamically and with the output that you want to show.
