Automatic Discovery of Robots

The laziest sysadmins are the best sysadmins.

The Zeroconf package for ROS allows provides a means of automatically locating all available robotic resources connected to the network. This will be useful for other applications to connect to robots on the local network without editing configuration files.

Excellent work on this package.

It's funny because it's the second concept I've had sitting on a long list of TODOs that IHeartRobotics beat me to the punch on. I put together a preliminary status indicator for byobu some time ago, and was just starting work on some Bonjour/Avahi integration into one of the ROS projects I was working on.

Thanks for the great contributions.
