The tcp_receive_line node

This node connects to a tcp endpoint and awaits data in a line separated special format, which is defined by the parser parameter. The parser will then try to convert the data to faxe's internal format and emit the result.

At the moment the line separator is fixed to \n.

If the changed option is given, the node will only emit on changed values (crc32 checksum comparison).

The tcp listener is protected against flooding with the {active, once} inet option.
