[vdr] Request for rotor integration to vdr

The rotor plugin doesn't seem to be maintained anymore and was always 
somewhat of a hack to vdr. Seems to me rotor control should really be a 
part of vdr diseqc control code. Just about every sat box out there 
includes rotor control function.

I also looked at the Actuator plugin because I am interested in getting 
something going with c-band and thought maybe it included rotor 
commands. Don't it does, doesn't look like it's been updated since 
vdr-1.6.0, and requires a custom kernel module. I don't mind building 
custom electronics and was planing to anyway. But I don't want to have 
to hack code into the kernel. I think they have boxes that provide 
actuator control from rotor diseqc commands anyway which brings us back 
to including it.

I would also like to see it be able to handle a rotor per card. Not much 
point in having several sat tuners if they all have to look at the same sat.
