solve ax+by=1 in quadratic field

Dear pari users,

Given elements x,y of a quadratic field so that the associated principal
ideals satisfy (x)+(y)=1, I want a and b so that ax+by=1.  The function
idealaddtoone computes "ax" and "by" but doesn't give "a" and "b".  
Any suggestions on how to get this out of Pari most efficiently (for me,
not the computer...)
