The libpurple DBus API is the C api with simple name translations of the form
purple_something_foo -> PurpleSomethingFoo.

    purple_account_new -> PurpleAccountNew
    purple_savedstatus_activate -> PurpleSavedstatusActivate

I believe all of the libpurple signals are exported over dbus and as such
can be listened for. Though they cannot be responded to in the same way
they can be responded to via plugins.
