I think a string would be better, as then it's self documenting. With
regard to the signal emmission, DBus-glib (the precursor to GDBus)
automatically sends out a DBus signal when the local GOBject sends a
signal. It's all a bit magic.

Converting to GDBus is one of my TODO items, but it's going to have to
wait until after GNOME3 as that's where all my effort is going these
days. Apologies.
