It could be better. But pacrunner's D-Bus API looks fine (mostly because
by using D-Bus you get asynchrony and cancellability for free).

It would be nice if it exposed the "Method" from
CreateProxyConfiguration as a property. Then if it's "direct", you know
you don't even have to bother calling, and if it's "manual", you know
that once you get the proxy for a particular URI, you don't have to call
again for that URI. (At least, until the next time pacrunner emits
PropertiesChanged.)
