The reason for adding them, if we should add them, would simply be
as convenience for a common operation.

Are they common? I don't have much data one way or the other.
You can certainly find examples of g_strdup_printf() followed by
gtk_label_new() or gtk_labeL_set_text() if you look through any
big body of GTK+ code, but not huge number of examples.

The question of "how to to set a label to an integer" also comes
up reasonably commonly on gtk-list; it's possible that people
would figure out gtk_label_format ("%d", num); easier than
finding g_strdup_printf().

One thing you could do with it is:

 gtk_label_format_markup ("<b>%s</b>", _("Doodads"));

though that doesn't solve the problem of doing that in the glade

No strong feelings here. I'll start working on the other parts
GLib and GtkMessageDialog stuff.
