I'd definitely vote against this as application developers can easily

gchar* command;
command = g_strdup_printf ("command %s %d", param1, param2);
gksu_call_some_method (command);

g_free (command);

Introducing printf features in gksu looks to me like being either:
 * code duplication (we have the code in glib), or
 * new security risks (if we wrote that code from scratch)
