NestedSetDbTable is a abstract class that provides API for managing 
some table which has data that is organized in "Nested set model" 

Developers should extend this class in order to use its functionality.
Properties $_name (name of the table), $_primary (name of the primary key),
$_left (left column name in nested table) and $_right (right column name
in nested table) must be overrriden in the extending class and filled with
appropriate values.

PDO instance must be supplied to the object of this class in order to
use it.

1. You should put folder, in which you've stored NestedSetDbTable dir, in
the include path. Here's an example of how to do that:

	set_include_path('.' . PATH_SEPARATOR . 'path/to/libs' 
		. PATH_SEPARATOR . get_include_path());

... where "libs" is name of the folder where you've stored NestedSetDbTable dir.

* insert() method enables adding new node at desired position in 
  tree hierarchy,

* updateNode() method enables updating data of some node, including

  for deleting only desired node (without its child nodes), or 
  deleting its child nodes as well
