Use IO handles with non-file objects

This toolkit primarily provides modules for performing both traditional and object-oriented i/o on things other than normal filehandles; in particular, IOScalar, IOScalarArray, and IOLines.

In the more-traditional IOHandle front, we have IOAtomicFile which may be used to painlessly create files which are updated atomically.

And in the “this-may-prove-useful” corner, we have IOWrap, whose exported wraphandle function will clothe anything that’s not a blessed object in an IOHandle-like wrapper… so you can just use OO syntax and stop worrying about whether your function’s caller handed you a string, a globref, or a FileHandle.
