Here is a suggestion on how editable cells might be done.
When the cell is clicked [¹/²], show a GtkEntry at the celllocation with
text being the cell content.
<ArrUp> and <ArrDown> have no effect when editing (can this be achieved
using an orphan Entry?)
<ESC> ends edition without saving changes.
Edition ends as soon as the user press <ENTER> or the Entry loses focus,
changes are saved, hide the Entry.
[¹] do the cell have to be selected already? This may be configurable...
[²] I don't know how keynav will be handled... if the user can move among
cells in a row, pressing <ENTER> would begin edition.
What do you think about this?
