Although you can catch the actual event for the enter key being pressed,
you probably want to use a signal provided for this particular use
called "Activated".

	Gtk.Entry entry = new Gtk.Entry ();
	entry.Activated += new EventHandler (EnterPressed);


	void EnterPressed (object sender, EventArgs args)
		Console.WriteLine ("Entry has been activated");

Activated might also be triggered by the accessibility features through
a voice command.
