Feature request: re-factor the qpid tools to better handle large-scale configurations.

Description of problem:
See bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=581006
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The following qpid tools attempt to retrieve a large number of management objects from the broker as part of their normal operation:
All of the above tools use the QMF getObjects() method call to retrieve all objects of a given class, "queues" for example. If a large number of objects are defined, then the getObjects() method may not complete before its default timeout expires (60 seconds).
*) allow the user to manually override the default timeout via a command line option. To override the default timeout, the "_timeout" parameter may be passed to getObjects()
*) Put a count of objects for each class type in the broker object. The tools could use the count to determine if the default timeout should be overridden automagically.
*) QMF V2 will provide a feature where a list of just the object identifiers are returned, rather than a list of the complete objects. This may be used by the tool to get a summary of all known objects more efficiently that transferring the whole objects themselves.
