[Gtk-sharp-list] Improving Gtk# The Wiki Page.

I think something should be on there about dealing with Collection
Widgets without the use of Iterators.

Taking a comparison of the ComboBox in Windows Forms and GTK# should
give you a good understanding of what I mean.

I should be able to easily go:

ComboBox.Items.GetIndex(3); to return the third item in the combo box's

It shouldnt have to be a page full of code :)

A lot of the collection widgets are built with these iterators, and
there just simply is no point in doing so. Lists are indexes based for a
reason :)

My 2 cents.
