contents of orage-dbus.h is:
#ifndef __ORAGE_DBUS_H__
#define __ORAGE_DBUS_H__

void orage_dbus_start(void);
gboolean orage_dbus_import_file(gchar *file_name);
gboolean orage_dbus_foreign_add(gchar *file_name, gboolean read_only);
gboolean orage_dbus_foreign_remove(gchar *file_name);

#endif /* !__ORAGE_DBUS_H__ */

It is in svn, but seems to be missing from all the snapshots.
I will check that...but now you can simple create it manually.

Colin actually coded most of the Orage/claws monitoring stuff....
thanks again !!

Orage does not currently understand http (no import no  export) so
that should be added before I can add monitoring.
