I've thought about it a bit more and does this really need to be in
libgnomeui?  I mean how many other places can't be pangoized easily and would
need it.  It could present a serious confusion to developers.

Perhaps just cut-n-paste to gnome-terminal could be enough.

If there are more then a few, then this would be a good idea to avoid
cut-n-paste, if gnome-terminal is really the only place then I think we can
just leave it cut-n-paste.
