I think that can be moved to GtkTreeView and shouldn't have a issue.
Patches are welcome :).

It is not that, it doesn't understand markup. The '_' is there to
provide key accelerator in visible UI items, and it isn't stripped of at
those places. I don't think that '_' makes any sense in the table/row.

It is that, we have moved to GtkTreeView to in lots of places and we
have list of places where we want to move and don't want to move.
Message list is a place where we don't want to move.

This can be fixed.

In few themes, Ive seen that it looks like a table header, but not in
all themes. If you have seen this 2.10, may be with a right theme. Im
sure that this should be fixable in widgets/table. I don't think it
would right to fix all the other themes for this.
