FWIW, the biggest problems for Haze are the request and notification UI 
ops. Interestingly, the Palm people had the same problem with their 
headless D-Bus daemon wrapping libpurple: they couldn't hook up the 
request UI ops, and so when libpurple tries to show an SSL certificate 
confirmation dialogue, the connection process just hangs silently.
