The type names in mixed case don't appear in any function names

If you read it as short for "internalize" then it seems fairly clear.
Ie. a thing is brought to a canonical or efficient internal form.

Dunno who conceived these functions (was it Marius?) or if that was
what they were meant to stand for, but can always introduce a
retrospective justification :-).

If it was up to me I'd leave the current arrangements alone.  They're
not really too terrible, and there's no need for too many departures
from plain vanilla gtk/gdk.
