> + * tp_contact_get_publish_request:

Please document whether/under what circumstances this returns %NULL or "". One
nice set of semantics would be to guarantee that it's non-NULL if and only if
publish-state is REQUESTED; an alternative nice set of semantics would be to
guarantee that it's never NULL (in which case you'd either need a special case
in the getter, or initialization to g_strdup (NULL)).

The doc-comments for the getters should cross-reference to the properties. I
like the wording "Returns: the value of #TpContact:publish-state", personally.


Can this go above YES if you're given a stupid value from D-Bus? I think it can
- so the limit needs to be G_MAXUINT32. Or, clip out-of-range values to UNKNOWN
whenever you receive information from D-Bus.

I don't like using an enum member as the upper limit: if anything it should be
(NUM_TP_SUBSCRIPTION_STATES - 1) (which is numerically equal, at the moment).

I'm not keen on this; I know it's only test code, but it's a misleading thing
to do. The point of not using TpConnectionPresenceType is that basically no
connection managers will have exactly one status per TpConnectionPresenceType -
in the general case, a CM will lack support for some of the "important" (i.e.
directly mapped to presence type) statuses, and will have some statuses that
share a TpConnectionPresenceType (e.g. in Gabble, "available" and "chat" (free
for chat) are both AVAILABLE; in MSN, AIUI, "on-the-phone" and "having-lunch"
could both be BUSY, but there is no "busy" as such).
