The TreeView is an awesome widget, but very complex. I'd like to see
some simple widgets for that quick actions that all of us repeat all the
time: simple grids, simple trees... Just inheritance.

- Not having specific widgets for databinding, as xsp does.
- The few documented monodoc reference.

I'd like more tutorials, yes, but what I really need is a complete
monodoc reference for gtk#. There are hundreds of undocumented classes.
Of course, I can go to the C gtk api for documents, but... well... we
are C#-ers. :-)

In the other hand, I must say that gtk# is a great library. Thank you
all for the good work.
