For compatibility's sake, it sounds like we should also emit the failed signal, or do you think that is not necessary?

This is different to the WebView signal. In the WebView signal you are supposed to be able to react to the signal, or ignore it. That's why it's boolean, you can handle it (to show the block page or whatever) or not, and if not handled, the default behaviour is to emit the failed signal, so that the normal failed handler will show the error page. In the case of resources, we don't have a default handler for load failures, the signal is only informative, you are not supposed to handle it or not. The GError passed to failed signal doesn't provide any additional information, you already know it's a TLS failure.
