Re: Table with expandable row > focus management

In our case, multiple rows can be expanded and the tables are often
sortable (so I would not be able to guarantee where the expander
rows are). The rows who appear should ideally come right after
the row who initialised their opening-ness, so I can always move
down by 1 row to find new rows (IF I don't move focus down into
those new rows myself).

cheers,
