Oops; looks like the secret agent bits didn't get included in the D-Bus
spec generator.  I'll fix that and upload new docs now.

Since it's a GetSecrets() call, NM is complaining when things other than

harm in silently discarding stuff other than secrets.  It was only there
for information.  I'll take a patch that turns it off.
