avahi-bonjour firewalld xml file

Description of problem:
Could you please add a service entry for avahi? It's used by the empathy "people near me" feature and should be readily available to end users. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Based on this post: http://saravananthirumuruganathan.wordpress.com/2010/04/04/empathy-chat-messenger-tutorial/

the ports that need to be added are: tcp 5298,udp 5353. I've made a minimal file that should be enough. I'll ask the avahi-maintainers to look it over though.

Warm regards,

The configuration file is

# grep 5298 /etc/services 
presence        5298/tcp                # XMPP Link-Local Messaging
