I've done both schemes.  One down side to the glue with stuff in conduit 
approach is that you get glue on the contents if you're not super careful.  It 
also might not be as water tight, since you're jostling the connection just 
after gluing, and the joint might no be completely set.

However, as you note, it's a whole lot easier.
