I went to look in svn and a lot of comments say "still under very
heavy development."

Are these comments out of date?  It seems that way given how long
these files have sat around.

Also, would it make sense to allow right clicks?  This is very handy
for adding context menus.  It is all done in code by creating
MenuItems right now, but one could probably associate actions to the
widget for a nice generic context menu display.  This code was mostly
stolen from somewhere.  Anything I added is as free as it was

On line 461 of ListView.cs.
			if(evnt.Button == 3) {
				OnMouseButtonClick(new MouseButtonPressedEventArgs(evnt));
				return true;

elsewhere add
		protected void OnMouseButtonClick(MouseButtonPressedEventArgs bpea)
			if (null != this.MouseButtonClicked)
				this.MouseButtonClicked(this, bpea);

still elsewhere add
	public class MouseButtonPressedEventArgs : System.EventArgs
		Gdk.EventButton evnt;
		public Gdk.EventButton EventButton {get {return this.evnt;}}
		public MouseButtonPressedEventArgs(Gdk.EventButton evnt)
			this.evnt = evnt;

Oh and don't forget
 		public event EventHandler MouseButtonClicked;
