     It's important to remember that the columns in a list store don't 
have to be referenced in the tree view. In Gtk# there is a greater 
amount of separation between the data and the display than in MS grids.
     Here is my favorite beginner tutorial

     At first it seems kind of ackward using class objects to populate 
the liststore/treestore but over time is become very helpful.

     TreeViewColumn.Resizable = true;
