Yeah, the issue though is that in order to make this particular property
be named shadow, we would have to hide the shadow-type prop and the
(get|set)_shadow_type methods, otherwise the generator will still
generate the second prop.  We have a preference for get/set methods
built into the generator, because they are more efficient than GObject
properties, so in general choosing the prop name indicated by the
get/set methods is to be preferred if only one of the props has such
