#411 added min_dist property to hokuyo_aist

Player (393)

When there is a scratch on the surface of the device, the laser may see very close obstacles, which can seriously disturb navigation algorithms. With this feature, obstacle points closer than min_dist are considered as erroneous and replaced by surrounding values. If min_dist is set to 0, this behavior is inactive and we get the raw reading. Otherwise, min_dist is the minimal distance value in meters. Default is 0.
Actually, this would be usefull to add this feature to all laser and rangers...

    I made this an actual property, rather than just a configuration file value. This allows clients to change the value at runtime.
