Well, we'd need to add API to dbus-signature.h for turning an iter into
a signature string, which seems like kind of an unusual use case.  I
tried to see if I could separate the arguments in the message_handlers
structure so we wouldn't need to parse, but I couldn't quite figure out
a good way to do it.

I committed the patch for now, but we can revisit if there's another use
for the sigiter -> string.  Also, we might actually want to refactor the
current message_handlers structure so we can get sensible argument names
in the introspection data anyways.
