What kind of signature for this special method?

I would like to export a special method of a Python object which is 
something like this:

class Hello(dbus.service.Object):
   def __init__(self, bus_name, object_path = '/my/example/Hello'):
     dbus.service.Object.__init__(self, bus_name, object_path)

   def mySpecialMethod(self, **args):
     # something here with args dictionary

I need to add an in_signature argument to the method decoration in order 
to have a good introspection. Does it exist a way to have such a 
flexible signature? Any idea? I'm afraid it's impossible...

Ah, another question...

I was trying to have the object attributes accessible via a D-Bus proxy 
(we already had a discussion on this topic) exporting __getattr__ and 
__setattr__ as normal service methods, but it doesn't work (maybe for 
you it is obvious but for me it wasn't and I did an attempt). Do you 
have an idea on how to obtain the object attributes exported with a trick?

Thank you very much.
