Yes: telepathy-haze doesn't present any UI itself, so it can't show 
dialog boxes. This is why the purple_request_* API isn't implemented.

I think the way out of this is, unfortunately, to have a channel type 
for captchas and stuff, which would look pretty much like the 
authentication channels Eitan is working on.
