Bug Description

Binary package hint: usb-creator

For people hacking on usb-creator, it would be very useful to have a --pretend mode that printed out what potentially-destructive commands (dd, parted, etc.) would be run without actually doing anything. This would give the developer a bit more piece of mind that their changes wont clobber their /home.

This should be implemented as a fake devicekit-disks dbus service, as part of the unit test framework.

To elaborate, a --pretend or --simulate option could be added as well. The fake devicekit-disks should return disk images that it has created in /tmp for EnumerateDevices().
