This is to work around a dbus-glib bug. The signal names need to be unique
across all interfaces implemented by an object. So
AM.I.Hidden.HiddenAccountValidityChanged can't be called
AM.I.Hidden.AccountValidityChanged, because this conflicts with

(It works by objects emitting corresponding GObject signals; unfortunately the
names dbus-glib expects are based only on the signal name, not on the interface

It makes me unhappy too! The properties only have stupid redundant names for
consistency, so I could rename those, depending on whether brevity in property
names is worth the inconsistency.
