OK... So I :
"Filter specific rows, based on data from a "visible column", a column storing 
booleans indicating whether the row should be filtered or not, or based on 
the return value of a "visible function", which gets a model, iter and 
user_data and returns a boolean indicating whether the row should be filtered 
or not."
Where do I do this filtering? I guess I'd need to create some sort of "visible 
function" that would make visible that which I want to filter??? And WTF is 
an "iter"?

Yeah, I know. But it would look purdy if it had colors. ;)
