Numerous people have done this so it is indeed possible. You can't
subscribe to hints, but you can subscribe to device state. That is: "I
want to receive events about the device state of PJSIP/alice" to know
when they are available, not available, etc. This is done by
subscribing[1] your application to the deviceState events of the device.
For PJSIP/alice you'd subscribe to "deviceState:PJSIP/alice"
