Rename QMetaMethod::signature() to methodSignature()
In Qt5 the meta-data format will be changed to not store the method signature string explicitly; the signature will be reconstructed on demand from the method name and parameter type information. The QMetaMethod::signature() method returns a const char pointer. Changing the return type to QByteArray can lead to silent bugs due to the implicit conversion to char *. Even though it's a source- incompatible change, it's therefore better to introduce a new function, methodSignature(), and remove the old signature().
