- Because it was simpler
- Because I had never seen anybody use more than two panes, 
  and hadn't thought of the possibility.

If somebody wants to contribute code to do this, then that
would be nice. ;-)

gtk_paned_add() doesn't work as a name, since we have
gtk_container_add(). I suppose gtk_paned_pack() might be a good name,
though it wouldn't be very parallel to the gtk_box_pack() interface.

(And isn't at all parallel with the current two-panes limitation,
 probably one reason why I avoided it)
