bug#29575: 25.3; Secret Service API treats labels as unique

Thanks.  It doesn't look like there is a way to get the object path by
searching attributes?  That means there's no way to get the object path for
a secret added from a cooperating application (that may not have a unique
label).  secrets-search-items returns labels.  Ideally there would be a
variant of secrets-search-items that returned object paths.

Also, the docstring for secrets-create-items now has this line which I
think is misleading:

The label ITEM must not be unique in COLLECTION.

Should it be:

The label ITEM does not have to be unique in COLLECTION.
