Bug Description

I've been thinking about the best best use for the `dmedia-cli` command like script, and I've decided what I really want it to do is document the DBus API, make it easy for developers to play. I'm taking inspiration from great tools like `gst-inspect`, which I use constantly.

In particular, I want `dmedia-cli -h` to be usable as quick documentation of the DBus API, so I'm gonna take a quick stab at this, see how it works.

Okay, never mind... thought this would be a quick way to better document the DBus API, but turns out argparse totally sucks for doing VSC-style commands.

Onto other things, will revisit this eventually... or if someone else wants to take a stab, by all means!
