Remote2Key 0.5 released - Anti-Repeat support

This release adds an anti-repeat feature.

If your remote is sending signals too quickly, you may see undesired behavior. You might press the channel up button and see it go up two or three channels instead of one. Thanks to contributor Adam Kropelin, this is now possible via a "lockout" attribute on the binding element. Here's Adam's description of this feature

I added a "lockout" attribute to the binding element which specifies the time period (in msec) during which repeats of that same binding will be ignored. I wanted to allow repeats of certain codes which is why I didn't make this a global setting for all bindings. Also, it seemed appropriate to apply the lockout at the binding level (where the action takes places) instead of the remote level (which is just mapping IR codes).
