Getting the BuddyIcon using python and dbus?

I've been following this guide here to 
integrate pidgin in my littly python script via dbus. Now i'd like to 
display the buddy icons next to the buddies but 
PurpleBuddyGetIcon(buddy) only returns an int32. what am i supposed to 
do with that? how do i get the image path out of it? i know there are 
buddy icons stored in ~/.purple/icons but they have hash-like file names 
and i don't know how those are associated with the contacts.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
