to update the list, this proposal is now implemented and fully
working (rev 854987).
Transform3f t2 = Translate3f(tx,ty,tx) * AngleAxis3f(M_PI/2,axis)
* t1 * Scaling(sx,sy,sz) * Translate(vec) * q;
all these products are optimized (assuming the compiler is able to
optimize unnecessary temporaries)
The classes Translate and Scaling features also operator*(Vector) and
inverse() which might be useful to write generic algorithms taking
any kind of transformations as input.

just for your information: all these GL functions (glTranslate,
glRotate, glScale, glLoadIdentity, glLoadMatrix, glMultMatrix,
glpush/PopMatrix, etc...) are going to be removed in OpenGL and have
already been removed in OpenGL ES 2.0.
What remains is something like "glUniformMatrix4fv(matrix_name, data)"
where "matrix_name" is whatever you want.....
(but this not at all an argument against the translate/rotate/scale
functions which are nice to have)

I think this is quite useful in 2D, e.g., all drawing softwares
