There is, but it is somewhat ugly. We use the following code:

  object = klass->constructor (type, 

construct_properties is an array of GObjectConstructParam which is 
build beforehand using info from klass->property_specs.

Anyway, I think our code would benefit from g_object_newv() too. At 
least gtk_object_newv is what we used before the port to GObject.
