It avoids copying the slot list unless it has to (it has to when you
connect a slot while an invocation is in progress). If it does have to
copy the slot list, it will clean up all the disconnected slots from the
new copy and discard the old copy when all invocations using it complete.
These are implementation details though, it would be best not to rely on
