Yes and no. Yes the indexes are not meant to be "stored away", but they
are cached by Qt's view classes.

What I meant to say, if you implement a function that removes elements
from your tree and doesn't take a QModelIndex to the parent of these
indexes (like the removeRows() function does) then you need a way to
calculate the index for this parent element. I guess the
element-to-be-removed has a function to retrieve the parent, so you can
calculate the row+col for that element too, if you can do it for the
to-be-removed-element. Then to get the parent index of the parent
element do the same.
