Showing the buddy list with DBus

Hello there.

I'm trying to write a better Pidgin applet to use with Cairo-dock. I'm 
trying to use DBus to get the buddy list to show and hide itself. As far 
as I can tell, I can use PurpleBlistSetVisible(show), but I'd to use 
pidgin_blist_toggle_visibility() instead (seems like a nicer way). Is 
this possible? Is pidgin_blist_toggle_visibility() exposed through DBus?

Using Ubuntu Lucid 32-bit, Pidgin 2.6.6 from the official repos, and Python.

Thanks in advance.
