I found the function purple_find_conversation_with_account, where the name and the account arguments seems to be the the name and account of a PurpleBuddy structure (please, correct me if I'm wrong). So my guess is that I could do that by exploring the entire buddy list but my question is, is there a better way to do that ?

What are you trying to do exactly? Why do you need to know if any random
conversation already exists? What would looping over the buddy list help
you determine?
