Use the GetDBusNames method and the DBusNamesChanged signal on the Tubes
channel to map between D-Bus tube unique names and Telepathy contact handles.
tubeconn.py in the Python examples directory uses these to get a mapping
between unique names and contact handles - we'll put something similar
in the actual library at some stage, but at the moment we'd rather not
freeze an API for it, hence it's just in the examples.

(These only work for multi-user tubes channels - in 1-1 tubes channels we
don't enforce any particular unique names for D-Bus tubes, and it's up to
the application what it uses. However, we recommend multi-user
tubes channels for most purposes, since these give you a chatroom to
discuss the collaborative application.)
