The basic principle is that we only want one set of list widgets; since
GtkTreeView is a much more powerful and flexible system, the old
widgets are marked as deprecated.

(Multiple columns, tree structure, DND, model/view, sorting, and
20 or 30 other features...)

No, we don't consider it a problem. You can do the same things other
though this isn't the right list to discuss how to use GtkTreeView.

These widgets haven't been the preferred way to do a list for about
5 years now. (GtkCList was the preferred widget for GTK+-1.2.) 

Despite that, I think they are "complete". Certainly as complete
as they'll ever be. (GtkTree, on the other hand, never worked.)
