Week 3 of GSoC work on Buf — talk like a Parrot day

Remember that long-term solution for conversions between strings and arrays of bytes that I mentioned last week that the Parrot people were discussing?

No? Well, anyway, NotFound++ wrote one, and he suggested I try it for my Str⇄Buf conversions. It worked!

I thought I would get more than that done this week, but I didn't. Oh well. For next week, there are still a few low-hanging branches of fruit to persue.

It's interesting to see where all the effort goes. I've spent most of my time so far on the Str.encode and Buf.decode methods, and almost everything else is trivial in comparison. Feels like some sort of 90%-10% rule at work.
