It's not wrong to use const signals.
That check is for developers that don't like changing state from const 
methods (and a signal implies state was changed).
If it doesn't bother you then you can disable the check.

But I'll remove it from the default group, make it opt-in and update the 
readme. As you're not the first one to ask.
