Add a command line option to start the frontend in a jumppoint

This patch adds 2 options to the frontend, --jumppoint and --runplugin. You can pass the full name of a jumppoint and the frontend will start there after loading, for example mythfrontend --jumppoint "TV Recording Playback". --runplugin works the same as the old way of passing the name of the plugin as the last option, mythfrontend --runplugin weather.
After discussing with sphery and wagnerrp on IRC, this patch removes the ability to symlink mythfrontend to the name of a plugin and it removes the ability to pass the name of a plugin as the last option, in favor of --runplugin. Additionally, it fixes a bug introduced in [b0165b23], which switched the logic on run_plugin(), which would cause the frontend to lockup if it was passed the name of a nonexistent plugin.
