You can either assign the conversation as the data to the callback
function when you set up the callback, or you can pass some other
information from which you can get the conversation as that data, or you
can keep a mapping from created buttons to their conversations in a hash
table, etc.

Might I also suggest looking at other plugins that add similar buttons to
the conversation windows and seeing what they do for possible ideas.
