2 cameras on the compute module?! #84

Apparently the compute module can support 2 cameras - when they're available, buy one and test it with picamera

At the very least we're going to need to remove the stuff that guards against creating two instances of PiCamera. I think the firmware guards against lockups related to this now so this is probably safe to do - test it?

Commit raspberrypi/userland@b3b728f adds support for multiple cameras to raspistill et al - need to duplicate this functionality in picamera for 1.7

And apparently there's a multiplexer project now (not yet funded at the time of writing, but apparently their proof of concept can at least switch between cameras): - anyway, it's another reason to at least get rid of the check against multiple instances
