Nope, I'm just an idiot.  I've rediscovered that J::P::L::A::Signup::arguments
is simply not designed to work as an inherited method, since it immediately
calls $self->SUPER::arguments.  However, I am a little confused how to fix this,
since the arguments() method is being called (by Jifty::Action line 135) on
behalf of each field in the User model, but which field is being checked isn't
being passed.  How is Signin supposed to get to the database fields themselves,
without them being hard-coded?
