Hmm, ok, corner case: the signal was duplicated from a base class. So this 
isn't SIC since derived classes will still compile (and now call the base 
class), but indeed a derived class would be looking for a symbol that didn't 
exist anymore, before recompilation; I didn't think of that.
Well, this was buggy and gave runtime warnings, I just had to fix it ;)
And I doubt there's a huge market out there for deriving from KCodecAction
and emitting triggered(QString) from the derived class.
