For the Sync menu you can use libsync-menu1 to access it and add items.
You might also want to grab libsync-menu-dev.  For the Python bindings
we're relying on GObject Introspection for them, so you can add the
library like this:

        from gi.repository import SyncMenu

You might also look at the Java project to provide GObject
Introspection.  I haven't used it myself, but it looks like it's likely
to have most of what you'd need completed already:
