Look at the ManagedTreeViewDemo.cs file.  The basic idea is that you:

 1. Store a custom data type in a TreeStore
 2. Set a custom cell renderer for the column to properly render the 
    custom data type used in (1).

You can also look at Type Reflector (Mono CVS module: type-reflector) in
displayers/gtk/GtkTypeDisplayer.cs.  Look at the TreeCell class and the
OnRenderCellText() function.
