action_set() does not support nested data

Bug Description

The action-set hook environment tool supports a custom '.' notation to specify nested keys, per charmhelpers.core.hookenv.action_set() does not support this, and you can only return a flat mapping.

charmhelpers.core.hookenv.action_set(dict(subdict=dict(key='value',key2='value2')) should work as expected, running:
   action-set subdict.key=value subdict.key2=value2
