The answer is "yes". ;-)
Which tree structures you use depends on what you're trying to accomplish and
what your use case is. There are some structures (for example, heirarchical
org charts) for which nested sets can't be beat. There are plenty of
reasons to implement other tree structures, such as graphs, cycles, and
delimited lists depending on what you're trying to depict.
What WITH is going to "replace", if anything, is the simple adjacency list
