I was playing with it a little bit, and it looks like if something gives you a 
DCOPRef, you can then use it as the first argument to the dcop command.

So first I say this, to get the DCOP reference:
$ dcop konqueror-5742 konqueror-mainwindow#1 action reload

And then I call "activate" on what it passed back to me:
$ dcop 'DCOPRef(konqueror-5742,konqueror-mainwindow#1/action/reload)' activate

That causes my Konqueror window to reload.

I guess you could combine it all into one line too:
$ dcop `dcop konqueror-5742 konqueror-mainwindow#1 action reload` activate

I guess you can even do it all with one DCOP call:
$ dcop konqueror-5742 konqueror-mainwindow#1/action/reload activate

I wonder what the difference is. Anyway, I hope that helped. :-)
