GtkComboBox does not implements search_column as GtkTreeView.

It can be really interesting to implement search_columns for GtkComboBox when there is lot of items in the model.

Currently, there is no way to quick-select (based on keystroke) an item from a combobox (like every comboxbox does in browser), user must open the box and search manually.

GtkComboBoxEntry is not solution, because the editable entry confuse the user and allow him to enter unwanted values.
