not quite as simple as this - I added gnc-budget.h to gnucash_core.i
- yes you get the GncBudget bindings but you also need access to Reccurence.h which uses GDates
which needs adding a gdate.i for type wrapping

plus the only budget lookup function in GncBudget does it by GUID
- to lookup by budget name needs a Qof Query - yes the qof query bindings
exist but the result of query run is a GList of arbitrary type objects
which I didnt figure a good way of retyping so far - except by assuming
all GList entries are budgets and creating a wrapper to the base
query run to which the GList entry type is passed
- but still dont really like this yet
