Lightweight implementation of the OSC protocol

'liblo' is a simple, lightweight implementation of the OSC (Open Sound Control) protocol. Current features include a nonblocking mesage dispatcher (which is useful for single GUI-thread applications like Qt and GTK+), UNIX domain (FIFO) socket server/client support, TCP domain socket server/client support, the ability to stop server threads, and better regression tests.
