Bug in send function

If LCD’s data lines are shared with other components like keypad, LCD will not work properly due to incorrect send function in liquid crystal library so if coder sets one of these pins as input, result will same. The send method does not set/control pin status before writing data. Below code can be added to LiquidCrystal.cpp

  for (int i=0; i<((_displayfunction & LCD_8BITMODE) ? 8 : 4); ++i)
  {
    pinMode(_data_pins[i], OUTPUT);
   }

It would be useful if you could indicate in which function/method that should be implemented.

In my opinion, sharing pins is not a good idea; but that's just me.
