costmap_2d documentation

Getting the char array back right now is messy. The user needs to allocate something. Possibly a higher level structure... like a vector. Create a charMap structure that has height, width, resolution and remove the getCharMap call from the Costmap2DROS api, moving it solely to the Costmap2D api. The user is responsible for making the copy themselves now, they can get a const pointer to the underlying char structure but must do the memcpy themselves

Mark add observation buffer as experimental, and also add book-keeping so that the Costmap2DROS object is not responsible for deletion.

TODO: We need to have an overall discussion about whether or not to use get in all the accessors we have

Add get to all the costmap accessors

Remove the lock() and unlock() calls for the costmap

laserScanCallback and PointCloudCallback should be private

Get rid of resume and just make start intelligent and add documentation

enqueue should be private

sizeInCellsX vs sizeInMetersX

getRobotFrameID, getBaseFrameID

get rid of frame_from_message

observation_sources instead of observation_topics and add a topic field in the source namespace

raytrace_range should be per-source as well

see search param

If static map is true the following valus will be overridden

document default values for parameters

nicer formatting on param docs?
