We already turn getters and setters into properties wherever they follow
the following forms:
GtkFoo gtk_bar_get_foo (GtkBar);
void gtk_bar_set_foo (GtkBar, GtkFoo);
We even suppress the GObject properies in preference for the
getter/setter if it is available.
In this case, it would probably be best to just hide the Arrow.Set
method. It would be a PITA to try to use that method to set two property
I committed a metadata change to hide the Set method.
