I'm mostly concerned about consistency across YaST modules. If the
printer module now starts with left-side trees for navigation, how
does it look for other modules ?

This is done as well in Firewall, autoyast module.
The partitioner will use it after the redesign as well.

IIRC, we had this discussion about 2 or 3 years ago and dismissed the
left-side tree approach.

Is there any book, where I can read what was every considered or
dismissed regarding YaST?
That would help a lot :-)
I had a short to talk to Eva and Sigi about that.
The only thing this talk revealed was, that we once decided not to use
trees when those trees become too complex (lets say more than 3 layers
or something) and when the user would be forced to scroll horizontally.
But I think that neither of these situations is given at present.

Icons are fine, but its not clear to me what a 'big red X' means.
Lets look at other icons to make the state clearer.

According to Jiris suggestion I changed the "x" into some text.
