                    subclasses chaining up.

I am currently subclassing McdAccountManagerSso, and want to override the _get
method; my new method wants to chain up to the original one, having stuffed in
an extra entry into the keyfile.

But I can't chain up, because McpAccountStorageIface is hidden, and the vtable
is filled in using _implement_foo functions. This seems completely pointless to
me. The main rationale for this pattern in tp-glib's generated interfaces is to
avoid reorderings in the spec affecting ABI; this does not apply to a
hand-written interface in Mission Control.

This wouldn't take all that long, but I don't have time right now.
