Thunderbird is not written in GTK, it's written in XUL.

It's not easy to do the same thing in GTK+, you would have to write your own
 widget which can display selectable rows.

I started to write a somewhat similar widget in kiwi, which allows you to
select children of a box:
http://svn.async.com.br/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/kiwi/trunk/kiwi/ui/selectablebox.py?view=auto

While not finished, it may give you some hints how to write a complete
widget like the one in thunderbird.
