    Right. It's a sort of quick hack you can say.
    I thought sometime (may be not much) over it but could come up with only
    Actually, I could not find any better method to compare for whether a
*tree* has already been created or not.
    (tree == the one that I'm creating) or may be there are better
approaches than creating this *tree*.

    I agree that too much string manipulation may hinder performance. Umm...
can I get away with HashCode?
    Oh yes, I forgot that string-s are passed by value while other objects
(not structs) by reference. Will 'ref' help?

    Still thinking....
