Hi there,

I am wondering what're the differences between those two modules apart

I've googled around but found nothing told me the reasons... 
Would be great if someone can explain it (or give me a link).

As i recall, we realized that placing arbitrary perl modules directly into the Gtk2 namespace was a bad idea 
in the long run, opening us up to the possibility of name clashes and other problems as the upstream code 
grew.  Moving from the original to the new name allowed fixing a couple of warts, and the new code continued 
to evolve.

Another question I have is, is it possible to use Gtk2::SimpleList to
create a treeview? This is only interesting if it's not a problem to
use Gtk2::SimpleList in new code ;-)

Thanks in advance,

I've been using emacs for 20+ years and have barely touched lisp.  I wouldn't know lambda calculus if it took 
all its clothes off and waved a placard that reads "I am lambda calculus" in blinking 48-point Comic Sans.
