Not really. The C documentation

incomplete but it might help a bit for the parts that translate
directly to python.

The available properties are defined in rhythmdb.h:
When accessing these in python, you remove the 'RHYTHMDB_' prefix,
since they're already in the 'rhythmdb' module.
Alternatively, run 'filter(lambda x: x.startswith("PROP_"),
dir(rhythmdb))' in the python console.
