Hum... mixed feelings here. From one side, I see it useful to generate
symbols for the names of the entries in the dictionaries; from the other
side, I don't want to duplicate where they are defined (gtk-doc comments
and the new mapping).

Another possibility to ensure we only have 1 place to define the
possible dictionary entries would be to manually maintain a list of
symbols in a new public header, as done with the enums in
'ModemManager-enums.h'. The list could be defined as:

 * SIM-PIN unlock code, given as a string value.

... and so on

And all entries of the same dictionary could be included then in the
same section in the gtk-doc page generated from that code.

Once that page with dictionary-specific entries is available, the
introspection gtk-doc documentation could directly include a link to the
relevant section, instead of re-listing all the entries again.

I will prepare a new PATCH using the approach you suggest.
