You can't add a button (or any other widget) in a cell of a GtkClist.  That 
would be a cell of type GTK_CELL_WIDGET, and support for it was never 
completed.  If you could I wouldn't have had to emulate buttons using the 
select signals.

As for the interface, I don't know how money does it, but Quicken 2000's was a 
an three pane window.  One was a register, one a list of transactions, and a 
third contained the buttons applicable to the selected transaction.  The 
matching was horrible (aparently, it used whatever the most recent 
transaction with the same amount was, very annoying).
