comment \pstree and crossed branches
Hmm. I asked a question (very real to me), got an answer I found useful and marked it as such, and commented that it is exactly what I looked for. You want a MWE (I had to think about 5 minutes what the TLA might stand for), look at the answer that is selected. I could not have written it before I read how he did it. My paper now looks good because of cmhughes, to whom I am deeply grateful. The rest of you... with community that treats a self-admitted newbie like this, it is no surprise already prickly TeX does not get a bigger following.

@cmhughes: Thank you, this looks to be exactly what I was looking for. Don't care if you call it cheating, it works.

Oh. Look, I did say I was a TeX newbie. On StackOverflow, we actually frown on pasting too much code; posting full program listing is a serious no-no. I had no clue the rules are different here.

comment \pstree and crossed branches
@Jake: Thank you, that is very helpful. I will try to do that, if no one suggests a \pstree method by tomorrow (I have never used tikz). I suppose messing with node's spacing is a good way to go - more flexible than the other, in case node names are too fat to render in fixed width.

comment \pstree and crossed branches
That is the complete example, since I don't know what to write inside the pstree to allow for crossed branches. The dots would just be recursive repetition of what is already there, as I don't know how to make anything different. (With one exception: I messed up, and missed \TR{} around the node names.) And if you browse my stackoverflow account, you will see that I do not mind doing the work. I did not ask how to make this specific (and rather useless) tree, I asked what is the method by which I can make such a structure possible.

comment Lining up leaf nodes in pstree
@AlanMunn: Oh, sorry. Misunderstood. I don't remember what didn't work any more, just that I tried and failed. And Werner's example works like a charm, without me having to rewrite all my examples into a different form.

Oooh, tabular works great! Although renewcommand fails with LaTeX Error: \stackit undefined.... Works with newcommand though. Weird. Anyway - thank you!

Dunno, I couldn't get in-node formatting to work in tikz-qtree. Besides, this is almost good-enough (if it only weren't for the damn shortstack spacing problems)
