How to use horizontal space more efficiently (project view)

Hi gentlemen

Please give your comments on following suggestion.

Java conventions on naming packages involve rather long paths. And typical
path (package name) can be smth like:
mycountry.mycompany.mydepartment.ourproject.myapp.etc... And
"mycountry.mycompany.mydepartment.ourproject" corresponds to four nodes in
the tree. You have to fold/unfold these nodes (extra clicks), and they take
some extra horizontal space. But you really don't need them to appear on
screen in their full length. You want only to recognize them.
So... Imagine you have some means to "shortcut" such "immutable subpaths".
Say the mentioned subpath could be replaced in tree view with say
"...ourpjt" or with whatever "mnemonic" you like. Of course you see
"...ourpjt" only there, not in source files :)
You can consider this as some kind of aliasing.
Any comments?
Thank you.

PS The suggestion is inspired by Stephen Kelvin's msg with subj
"Module/Contents GUI is a major blooper".

I filed a request for this last month:

Project Hierarchy should have option to reduce package names.

Fine. I've voted for it.
