[Gtk-sharp-list] TreeModelAdapter hangs with my TreeModelImplementor class

I have already written such a TreeModel years ago and later revamped it 
to handle all lists implementing the IList interface(Collections, 
DataView, ..) with the appropriate columns (see attached file). I hope 
this helps :-) .

Still I would like to see something like this into Gtk# trunk as this is 
in my opinion one of the essential features that the binding is still 
lacking. I don't want know how many people transfer the elements of .NET 
ILists into a Gtk.ListView. I will talk to Mike (the Gtk# maintainer) 
again and see what we can do. IMO, such a tree model would be a really 
nice addition for Gtk# 3.0.
