Hopefully this "mostly" can be removed, since it actually isn't possible
to override a dbus Signal... they do get tightly bound at the time the
declarator is called.
But I think putting anything inside a @dbus.service.signal annotated
method other than 'pass' or maybe a debug print is weird. The primary
meaning of calling a dbus.service.signal is "emit this signal over the
bus, so there should be no need to do anything locally. If there is such
a need, it's better handled with a wrapper function.

This should just work as far as I can tell...
