Package proposal

The purpose of the ocean_battery_driver is to transform the information coming from the ocean server hardware into a ros message. The ocean server hardware reports it's information in a "NMEA" like format. The messages are parsed and the the data is placed into the BatteryServer and BatteryState messages.

There are N number of ocean servers in the system, each one connected to a serial port. This server will monitor all servers and create a unique topic for each.

Since there is an existing battery server, I have called the new messages pr2_msgs/BatteryServer2 and pr2_msgs/BatteryState2.msg. These messages are located in pr2_msgs.

This review is mainly to finalize the structure of these new messages. Once the new messages are accepted they will replace the existing messages.
