[Rack] second door key pad = second instance of Baron on minotaur

has anyone grabbed this task?  I put another door keypad on /dev/ttyS6 and 
mounted it on the wall above the intercom (upstairs)

we need another instance of baron to watch that keypad for door codes, so 
that people can open the gate with their numeric code.

that way, once that system is tested and working fine, we can disable the 
"DOOR" button so that only people with codes can buzz the door open from 

I noticed that baron.py may be getting its serial port from a baron.conf 
file, or maybe that is depracated, but since we will be running two 
instances on two different ports we should make it specify the serial port 
on the commandline.

just a reminder, the payphone is /dev/ttyS5 and the upstairs keypad is 
/dev/ttyS6 and they should both operate the same way.
