We have to duplicate get_args_valist anyhow, because we need to return
g_malloc memory rather than dbus_malloc memory. I just haven't gotten
around to it. There may be ways to partially share the logic, haven't
thought it through yet. (Sharing the logic isn't that big a deal right
now, but if we added support for more type recursion etc. it might be of

We do need an array version though for programmatic use, see
g_signal_emitv() etc.
