I've added the requestSubscription method in Connection.cxx which is the
one to insert a contact in the buddy list. Besides that I uncommented the
lines 100 and 101 at [1]. This should be sufficient to make available the
option Empathy>Contacts>Add Contacts..., right?

Because this option continues blocked to me. Should I add another function
somewhere else?
