xpra info

I'll add a "hello" key so the client can forward its command line (probably "argv"), then we can expose it via xpra info. That will be useful for the regular client too.

Done for the python client in r9473:

$ xpra info | grep argv=
client.argv=('/usr/bin/xpra', 'attach')
server.argv=('/usr/bin/xpra', 'start', ':10', '--bind-tcp=', '--start-child=xterm')

The client just added a new key to the hello packet named "argv".

Done for the html5 client in r9474:

$ xpra info | grep client.argv=

It seems that the html5 client added a trailing slash to the URL I typed in. Maybe that's a bug, or a feature.

Not sure about the trailing slash will reopen if necessary otherwise working as expected.
