      Description

      A while ago, I solved the problem with default parameters in signals.

      Since qt5, there is the “dataChanged(QModelIndex,QModelIndex,QVector<int>)”
      signal, where the last argumend is optional.

      This had to be supported in PySide2.

      I searched quite long and implemented a lot of functions in the XML files, but
      that did not work at all, since signals are handled specially in ‘pysidemetafunction.cpp’.

      Finally, I implemented a default argument for this single case. It has to be written
      in a more general way eventually, when we have more such cases.
      For now, the default argument problem is solved.

      General consideration:
      Should we not better implement signals like all the other methods in XML files?
      Why was it done directly in 'pysidemetafunction.cpp', is there any reason but history?
      I think this should be visible in the XML files, and I would like to re-write
      my ad-hoc solution.
