Bug Description

Currently u1sdtool is able to fetch metadata from syncdaemon on a per-file basis. This is great for debugging but it is rather hard to make it show what files are already synced and what files are still present on local machine only.

The other useful addition is the ability to list the server-side files syncdaemon knows that they exist on the server but are not yet locally available.

The first part is pretty easy to implement - see the attached script.
The second part requires syncdaemon to provide some kind of methods to access metadata w/o file keys.

Hi Roman,

Thanks for reporting this, I like the idea!

We could add a dbus method to return this info for a list of files or for all files, to avoid roundtrips
