I haven't received the other mail(s) that is talked about. However:

I'm implementing the composite pattern using acts_as_tree and STI in 
ActiveRecord. The thing that is modeled is nodes in a web site structure 
that is kind of tree structured (isn't all web sites?). So I try to loop 
over the nodes to do various operations (generate navigations, publish, 
distribute etc).

I'm sure that there are ways around this but then you have to code 
around stuff because of the language implementation and that doesn't 
feel good at all...
