Two ways to answer this.
1) You build the tree you want out of GenericTree objects, and pass that to
2) Don't. Part of Isaac's motivation for the new UI stuff is that the
UIManagedTreeList thing is not very well designed or implemented (obvioudly
written by a complete idiot).
If you want to learn how to build dialogs and widgets that will work with
Myth going forward, then check out the latest mythui cvs stuff.

Make a tree of GenericTree objects, and pass it.

Almost all Myth dialogs have two bins where ManagedTreeList's are used. You
can make that 3, 4, etc bins just by changing the xml.
