Specify port in the board constructor #51

Should we allow users to be able to specify a port in the board's constructor and skip the entire detection phase?

I'm nowhere near needing it yet, but my use case is that (very far) down the road I'd like to use multiple arduinos connected to a central controller for home automation purposes, so I could imagine that my code at that point would have multiple instances of Board with each bit of functionality requiring a specific arduino.

Yes, I think we should allow specifying the port explicitly. FWIW, a very rudimentary level of multi-board support is available: https://github.com/rwldrn/johnny-five/blob/master/docs/board-multi.md

@maxogden had issues with connecting from an ar-drone as well, so I'm going to go ahead with this
