Network support

Network version for large model railroads.

Normally every Rocrail server will have its own Rocgui to control the layout section it is resposible for.
This diagram shows a Rocgui with an overview off all servers which is not planned.

   rocrail-1    |    rocrail-2    |    rocrail-3
                |                 |
+----[b01]----< | <----[b02]----- | <----[b02]----+
|               |                 |               |
+----[b02]----> | >----[b01]----- | >----[b01]----+
