Hehe, you're missing the next level - the view classes are not the only 
ones that can use the models :) I use this to choose items in a tree 
model with a combo box.

QComboBox can take a model to deliver the items in it. But tree models 
have parents and usually multiple columns. The flat proxy can make a 
single item with the text of each item based on several columns.
