Add hook `cli_unknown_subcommand` #47

How about interpreting a subcommand DB.select_all as $obj->DB->select_all? Sub classes of CLI/CLI_JSON should be able to implement such subcommand interpretations easily. #46 is a good chance to introduce this.

To achieve such subcommand interpretation in a subclass, having below code in the class might be enough:

sub cli_unknown_subcommand {
  (my MY $self, my ($cmd, $arglist)) = @_;

  my (@method) = split /\./, $cmd;

  my $obj = $self;
  foreach my $meth (@method[0..$#method-1]) {
    $obj = $obj->$meth;

  my $sub = $obj->can($method[-1])
    or $self->cmd_help("Unknown method in @method[0..$#method-1]: $method[-1]");

  $self->cli_invoke_sub($sub, $obj, @$arglist);
