You need to create a TreeModel and either create the ComboBox with the
TreeModel constructor, or set its Model property after creating it. Then
you add things to the TreeModel, and they show up in the ComboBox. Note
that I'm pretty sure that using TreeModel is currently really annoying,
but Mike is working on that (but he's on vacation this week, so don't
expect any progress until next week).

Not in the current system. Possibly eventually.
