But your model knows nothing about these new columns.
TreeModelColumnRecord (your cols) is just a way to remember details
about model columns. You probably supplied it to a ListStore or
TreeStore create() method:

But your cols object is not shared. The model won't change in response
if you later change the TreeModelColumnRecord.

Basically, there is no TreeModel::add_column() method. You must recreate
your entire model when you want to add a column. I often wish that it
was more flexible, but it does make some sense: Adding a column means
that you've changed your data structure.
