obmcutil is slow, nonsensical output

We see the same behavior on the Barreleye servers, the obmcutil is quite slow but we've gotten used to it. The poweron and poweroff commands usually return either this message or a python backtrace if the backend dbus services are still warming up.

root at palmetto:~# time obmcutil 2>&1 > /dev/null

real    0m3.301s
user    0m3.030s
sys     0m0.230s

root at palmetto:~# obmcutil poweron
 = None

The above is really confusing as to what is actually going on... does
that mean success? Does that mean there's no power? Does that mean no
action was taken?
