In virtually all cases where there is duplication in GTK+, the property
functions simply call the setters/getters. In a few cases, things go the
other way (GtkFileChooser is the best example of this) - the
setters/getters simply use the properties.

I think you *are* getting confused with signals ... you can't replace
gtk_widget_show(widget) with g_signal_emit_by_name (widget, "show");
