I had on mind something simple, especially when you cannot pass pointers
over DBus, thus it would be quite complicated to support input widgets
in general way. The camel_session_alert_user() function outlines my idea
quite well, just provide text to show and then list of buttons which
will be available for user choices. I'm not sure if "remember this
choice" in conflict resolution makes sense, because the conflicts can be
of different sorts after all. Nonetheless, that can be added as kind of
flags, with corresponding value return.
