Learn, document and test the Jellyfin Python library

an invention by StevenK

Jellyfin is the volunteer-built, open-source media solution that puts you in control of your media. Stream to any device from your own server, with no strings attached. Furthermore, Jellyfin Python is the API client from Jellyfin Kodi extracted as a python package so that other users may use the API without maintaining a fork of the API client. Please note that this API client is not complete. You may have to add API calls to perform certain tasks. I have a Jellyfin server and I used have scripts running against a Plex server, but I'm missing them, so I'd like to re implement them against my Jellyfin server, but the library is difficult to use, so try and get a handle on it and document it.
