That's usually what you do with Telepathy. You use an established
account/connection from Mission Control that the user has already set
up. One of the main features of Telepathy is the ability to share a
connection between many applications that want to use it.

If you want to bypass Mission Control, which very occasionally is a
thing, you can request a proxy to a Connection Manager and then call
RequestConnection, but there is no neat async API for this in the GI
bindings, and you'll have to use the raw D-Bus API. One you have a path
to the Connection object you can return to using the GI bindings.
