Advertise both mythfrontend and mythbackend using Bonjour.

This may seem slightly counterintuitive to use Bonjour to advertise a
UPnP service but Bonjour seems to be more reliable (fewer networking and
firewall issues) and also allows apps to autodiscover frontends and
backends without the need for some form of UPnP implementation (i.e.
bonjour is widely available).

Master backends are differentiated from slave backends. The txt records
could be used to add some simple version and functionality check (e.g.
supported serializers) - but in reality, just like UPnP, we will always
support plain http/xml and we should be adding some form of version and
functionality check method instead.
