This patch will allow MiniDLNA to run multiple instances at the same time, serving content from different directories.

To use, you need to change:
- Port number
- Friendly name
- UUID

These (except for last) can be done in a separate config file and set with the -f option.

To make this work, I made the UUID of the server configurable with the command line option -u. It will only set as much of the UUID as you provide, for example `-u 5` will use the same UUID, but starting with a five (instead of four, as the default does).
