Raspberry Pi GPIO Google Talk Bot interface based on njsbot project

This idea for this project is to extend the https://github.com/nneves/Raspberrypi_GPIO capabilities and add support to remote control RaspberryPi GPIOs via Google Talk Bot (XMPP) text commands.

To make things simpler and isolated, the Google Talk Bot will run independently from the origial project, using REST (and maybe latter websockets) to SET/RESET the RaspberryPi GPIOS.

(Work In Progress ...)
