Hook Into Xfce4-Terminal Functionality via API, DBUS, something else?

Let's say I wanted to create a terminal application that would detect if it was being run on xfce4-terminal and, if so, change the background image and shading options according to various internal application logic on my end. Since I'm writing the source for the terminal application myself, it would be nice and useful to have an API where I could adjust the settings from within my application. Failing that, using some sort of userspace bus (DBUS? Something else?) or interprocess communication would also be an option.

Does anyone know if such an API exists? How would I go about implemented the above functionality? Thank you for your time.

Hello and welcome.

Probably best to ask at the xfce4-dev mailing list and perhaps the developer will respond.
