Adds core client Neural Autonomic Transport System (NATS) functionality to LabVIEW. NATS is a lightweight pub/sub messaging system that provides at-most-once QoS messaging.

The entire toolkit is written in native LabVIEW and requires no external dependencies to run the code (other than a freely available functioning NATS server).
