These are probably not the answers you want, but may help in the short term;

* its pretty easy to make composite components (ou probably know this)
* MrEd Designer[1] has a nice treeview - moving it into a separate module on
Planet is on my to-do list :(
* an Hierarchical List Control is available in Mr Lib: Extra GUI
http://docs.racket-lang.org/mrlib/Hierarchical_List_Control.html  (this is
used in Dr Scheme itself for the language selection dialog, and a more
sophisticated example is in the email client that you can find if you
download 'Racket Full' from the nightly installers.
* 'Racket Full' also include a small integrated GUI tool last time I looked.
* MrEd Designer is pretty sweet.
