It's a warning not an error to say that Qt, given the signature, can't
distinguish between the signal in foo from the one in bar. It's nothing to
do with PyQt, you'd get the same using C++.
If it were me I would define a bar.signal1 as (str, str) and used explicit
scopes where needed to pick between foo.signal1 and bar.signal1. However,
first thing I'd do is question (given the different number of arguments)
whether the two signals should have the same name in the first place.
