Well, it does (AFAICT): instead of copying the data to GtkTreeStore 
object as we do now, this custom LibBalsaMailboxModel would implement 
GtkTreeModel interface and fetch on request the data directly from 
LibBalsaMailbox. The "only" problem is that an amount of 
LibBalsaMailbxo code would need to be rewritten in order to be able to 
provide such data fast.
