velodyne_viz: Velodyne HDL-64E LIDAR visualization

Tools for visualizing Velodyne LIDAR data in three dimensions. Making this a separate package allows the other Velodyne packages to build on machines with poor 3D graphics support. The rviz 3D visualization is excellent, but it depends on OGRE, which is hard to build on some machines and only useful for machines with good 3D graphics.
