MQTT integration

I would like to propose including MQTT in a future release

MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium. There are open source versions of MQTT.

There are MQTT perl modules in CPAN, so technically it shouldn't be too difficult.

This would allow integration of homeseeer with several Home automation/building management systems on an open source basis.
