Yeah, the docs in general need love.

Right; unfortunately from looking at the code I think the answer right
now is that you can't send (u)int16 with dbus-glib.
Practically speaking, I think using int32 is easier all around and it
seems rather unlikely to me that using int16 vs int32 would show up in
any noticeable way in performance profiles. Still though it is
something we should allow; I guess we'd have to register custom gtypes
for them since their inclusion in glib has been shot down.
