Is there a way to import into a tree like in v5?

In version 5 of openerp, you could import directly into an embedded tree view in a form page (eg import sales lines on a sales order). Is there any way to do this in version 6 or 7? It was useful functionality. 

There is of course a workaround by importing sub-objects (eg import sales order with "line_ids/name" etc) but it is not very user friendly.

Timothy, there is no generic way because the internal O2M might need the mandatory parent field. So line_ids/name seems the way for now.
