Proper calibration system, better user interface and fixes

1Simple Face Identification
2--------------------------
3
4Uses OpenCV's face finder to record and detect identity.
5
6Use the number keys to train the system against different individuals. The idea
7is that one by one, individuals show their faces, after which the system will
8recognise who is who in the camera's view. The program will avoid recording
9faces which are too similar to existing recorded ones. Press 'd' to switch to
10switch off the training and just detect against existing faces. The boxes
11around the faces display the id and the confidence value of the match.
12
13Requires: OpenCV
14Written and tested on Linux, but it should work in Windows too.
15At the moment you'll probably have to run it with:
16
17simple-faceident --cascade=/path/to/haarcascade_frontalface_alt.xml
18
19In order to find OpenCV's data, on my machine it's in:
20/usr/local/share/opencv/haarcascades/haarcascade_frontalface_alt.xml
21
22Todo:
23* Command line parameters
24* YARP interface
25* Try normalised cross correlation instead of image differencing
