After this happens, there's no way (inside Pippy) to return to the
file you were working on before. That's why the treeview's hidden; an
accidental click on a treeview example would be extremely frustrating.
Interesting. It would be worth experimenting with hiding the treeview,
perhaps for all users except the one who initiated the share?
This could probably be useful if a teacher is facilitating a learning
session and can conveniently load examples for everyone to work upon.
However, I'm probably not the best person to comment on this, since I
have little idea how pippy is actually used in a shared learning
Anyway, I have uploaded an experimental Pippy version  with this
feature incorporated (including Walter's suggestion). Feel free to
test-drive and give feedback on this.
