[Mediawiki-l] Dynamic Tree Menu in a template

I would like to add a dynamic tree menu to my wiki pages.
My approach would be to create a template which uses an extension that 
contains all the necessary php.

It would be great if it were possible to provide a value to the 
extension, something like {{treemenu|Article Name}} , so the menu would 
expand at the correct place.
(The content of the menu itself doesnt have to be dynamic, reading its 
items from a text file would suffice.)

Has anybody done something like this?

(So far I've run into various problems. First of all I would like to 
know how to pass the Article name to the extension, it seems to me like 
it's not parsed at all.
Second I've already managed to display a menu but it is shown on the top 
of the page instead of being shown within the article where it should be.)

Cheers! :-)
