[Accessibility] AT-SPI IDL to D-Bus XML

As part of the special accessibility teleconference today, it was asked if a
compiler could be implemented to take the at-spi IDL files and output D-Bus
xml files for the interface objects. I have modified the compiler I'm
writing for generating Python D-Bus bindings from the IDL files so that it
also outputs the D-Bus xml files. You can view the results here:
in the "xml" directory. Information on running the compiler is in the README
There's a problem however. The signals aren't included in the xml because the
at-spi IDL files do not specify the events emitted by the objects.
I don't understand how accessible applications emit their events. Do they
create an Event object and pass it to the Registry somehow? Or are there
different "signals" for each event?
