this looks fairly redundant. i still don't know what you're using
this macro for, but if you can use a code generator, we already have
routines that can generate all of GTK_FOO_XBAR/GTK_TYPE_FOO_XBAR,
gtk_foo_xbar/gtk_foo_xbar_get_type, etc. from giving just the capitalized
version GtkFooXBar.
e.g. in perl: glib-mkenums, the rules for generating $enumshort and friends,
or in C: beast/bsw/mkapi.c the function tmacro_from_type() and friends.
