Currently, in order to retrieve the current screen color temperature
applied to all screen as well other attributes of night color manager,
one has to call nightColorInfo() periodically. This goes against well
established patterns in d-bus world. It is recommended to expose a
bunch of d-bus properties rather than have a method that returns all
relevant properties stored in a JSON object.
The ugliest thing about this patch is that a lot of code is duplicated
to emit the PropertiesChanged signal. Unfortunately, QtDBus doesn't
take care of this and we are left with only two options - either do
weird things with QMetaObject or manually emit the signal. I have
picked the second option since it's more comprehensible and less magic
is going on, but I have to admit that the chosen approach is ugly.
I hope that "Qt 6 will fix it."
