Okay, so there is the thing I somehow overlooked, thanks a lot. Sometimes
it's hard to spot the obvious when you're looking for something very
special =)

I've already worked with the TreeModel to display data and I've seen
examples on how to populate comboboxes with that (from Michael Hutchinson),
so your short and quick reply was indeed the key element I was missing.
