Permiting to increase significantly the list of RF protocols of OMG .

But now that we have this interesting possibility and with the goal of OMG of beiing multi boards compatible, why not trying to put Pilight on a Sonoff RF Bridge.

The list of protocol is interesting but at the moment not as big as Pilight one. Maybe I will test this nice work later.
