New Datafiles for Top Football Leagues (en,de,es,fr,it) - e.g. use $ sportdb new top

Hello, I’ve added some more datafiles that let you build your own football.db - using free open public domain datasets - with a single command e.g. $ sportdb new fr2014-15. The new datafiles include: de.rb and de2014-15.rb; es.rb and es2014-15.rb; it.rb and it2014-15.rb; fr.rb and fr2014-15.rb; at.rb and at2014-15.rb; top.rb and top2014-15.rb (includes top leagues e.g. en,de,es,fr,it). Cheers.
