Another option (don?t know if you are interested anymore) is to use dbusviewers. Its tedious and manual but quick. I have used qdbusviewer and d-feet! It does the introspection for you and list all possible ?interfaces? and their members. All you have to do is click on a specific property/method/..  provide the input and get the required output.

Python scripts are great for automation!

Dan, the python examples should suffice, I just didn't know they existed in that format as well.

Hi Jouni, I should have been able to find that in the first place.
Having an updated document would be really good. Better yet, of course, every "major" release should have a stable interface, but I know we do what we can... =)

Thank you both very much!

Though, it should be noted that there has been some extensions made to
the D-Bus interface without the documentation file getting updated and
as such, this is not fully up-to-date.

I have not been enforcing a requirement to update the doc/dbus.doxygen
file for commits that modify the D-Bus interface, but maybe I should
start doing that.. Anyway, patches to update the documentation to match
with the current implementation (mainly, the new P2P mechanisms) would
be very much appreciated.
