[Gtk-sharp-list] Treeview question (controlling the model using a TreeModel)

I pasted the code badly.. maybe I can simplify my question a little as
would really like to get this working:
Basically if you check out the piece of the tutorial here:
 it describes how to set up a TreeView so that it is bound to an
object containing your data.  When the data in your object changes, so
does the TreeView thus allowing you to update the data easily.
My problem is that the example uses a ListModel rather than a
TreeModel as in the previous section
If anyone has any examples of how to do this above using a TreeModel I
would greatly appreciate it.
