Great work Patrick! Thanks.

Btw, the swissranger in the TUM repository _was_ already handling both SR3k and SR4k, as we had both sensors there. If 
it didn't properly, someone must have introduced a bug somewhere. I remember Morgan sent me some patches but due to me 
moving overseas, I never had time to check them in.
