Wouldn't it be nicer if the signals where attributes of your object,
so that you could write


(and likewise for disconnect).

This is basically what C# uses, although there the += and -=
operators are used for connect and disconnect respectively.
To connect one would get:

	button.clicked += self.onButtonClicked

I've adopted this notation in my Python programs because I think
it's the most visually appealing.
