It is required to have them from the Java side, I don't know whether
python can synthesize them though.

Well I'd not really considered it being used from a dynamic language.
There are a few things you can do though. There is a low-level interface
provide which you can just pass strings to to call methods (check the
org/freedesktop/dbus/test/ file in the dbus-java

Alternatively, there is a dbus-python API...
