[avahi] Identify failures when registering a service in Vala

I admit I'm not really up to date on Vala, do you have an example of 
your code I can look at?

Looking briefly here:

Assuming you are using the gobject API it does seem to have errors and 
the avahi-gobject code itself converts these errnos into a GError with 
all the various function calls - which is likely where you should access 
it from.

My best guess, perhaps, is that you need to react to state_changed as 
most errors you're likely to hit (i.e. conflict when publishing) won't 
return immediately but instead later fire a state_changed event about 
the collision.  Is it in that handler that you can't access the error?
