*openwebif-client-d* is the REST api that my receiver speaks.
*alexa-skill-kit-d* is the base class and the types that

Good work! I've been using my Echo for a little while now and

1) I am on Mac, so no luck here
2) I needed to be as close to the Amazon Linux as possible and
that unfortunately is rhel based :( did not test Ubuntu though
