It is not currently possible, but I've added some notes to
http://bugzilla.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=70061 pointing out this use
case, with some ideas on how it could be implemented.

If you can't do what you need to do with TreeCellDataFuncs, then writing
the renderer in C (and binding it with gapi) might be your best bet,
unfortunately. Another possibility would be to just use a little bit of
C (or p/invoking) to call g_object_class_install_property() and override
GObject.get_property() on your class. (Look at gtkcellrendererpixbuf.c
etc in the gtk sources for details.)
