I would think maybe something like:

public static Gdk.Color Parse (string spec) {}

Would be more recognizable to most Gdk users, while still providing the
ease of use that you are looking for.  We can add another ctor, but are
we going to add overloads for every method that can create every struct
and object in the API?  That's going to get tedious, I think. Shared
methods are an equally usable construct.
