Add a communications channel so a manual trigger can be given remotely
The first "manual trigger" was one concocted to be triggered at a given time from the xml config, for use in testing pulling data out of the buffers.
A more useful manual trigger would be one in which someone sitting at RC could pop a Big Red Button, and the resulting RMS message would tell GT to issue a manual trigger right away.
We should certainly add this functionality. Need to decide if the old "at a configured time" should go away or not.

This is complete as of 24 July: see the test program "Mansender" for an example of how to send the manual trigger signal. We don't yet have a gui for it, but hey, I'm a command line kind of guy.
