I understand that the data source we have right now is too low level. I'd
prefer to call it "Cell data source" rather than view as it is more
specific to the table, unless we want to reuse it in other scenarios....

Now, maybe part of GSOC could be to provide a higher-level provider able to
nicely map domain objects to cells, wether it is text, icons, pictures,
morphs, widgets.
