Function textConverter

A converter to allow conversion into any other type of text.

auto auto textConverter(bool ensureBOM = false, Chain) (
  Chain c
);

The converter does 2 things. First and foremost, it adds a read function that allows conversion into any other width of text. The read function converts as much text as possible into the given format, extending the base iopipe as necessary.

The second thing that it does is potentially add a BOM character to the beginning of the text. It was decided to add this here, since you are likely already copying data from one iopipe into another. However, in future versions, this capability may go away, as we can do this elsewhere with less copying. So expect this API to change.
