Are these equivalent or do you prefer one or the other?

Don't ask others what they prefer. Ask yourself what you
prefer.  Operationaly, they are completely equivalent.

Actually, they're not.  Gtk2::Helper registers the callback for
G_IO_HUP so it will receive EOF / pipe close events in addition
to the events when data is available.
