Thank you.

I'll take $100, to a donee of my choice (I prefer the NRA-ILA) to
tell you to use purple_conversations_get_handle() as the handle, and
"chat-invited" as the signal name.

Since this signal has exited since at least 2005, and I didn't insert
it, you really don't owe me anything.  I'm sure the NRA-ILA would
appreciate the donation either way.  ;-)

Probably the reason that you missed this signal is that it is defined
as part of libpurple, not Pidgin.  Most IM- and buddy list-related
signals (that is to say, signals which do not directly relate to UI
functionality) will be found in libpurple, not Pidgin.  If this signal
doesn't do what you're looking for, please let us know and we'll see
if we can find one that does.

This particular event should probably just have a sound associated
with it, actually, that seems like a very reasonable thing to want to

for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
