Hi Miguel, 

I'm a GTK# beginner, so that's the point of you of a simple GTK# beginner :)

Some things I find annoying  :
- It seems we had to use ListStore for TreeView.Model, and it seems
ListStore is a simple another list object... There is always many
lists types in System.Collections, why should we use another lis type
for treeview for instance ? An IList would be better, no ?

To extend what i say, it seems there is a lot of things in Gtk and in
Glib that are equivalent to already implemented things in .NET
framework. For me, it would be better if no "duplicate" objects have
to coexist.

- I find some things very weird. To get the entry selected in a
TreeView, it seems we have to write an overcomplicated-for-the-job
code :
TreeIter iter;
TreeModel model;
TreeSelection sel = myTreeView.Selection;
if(sel.GetSelected(out model, out iter)) {
    int thing = (int)model.GetValue( iter, 5 );

And so on.

A simple thing like that could not be possible ? :
int thing = (int) myTreeView.EntrySelected(5);

or, even better, a thing like that :
MyObject my = (MyObject) myTreeView.EntrySelected();

(and thanks for mono !)
