Added devel/ocaml-astring, an alternative string library for Ocaml

Astring exposes an alternative String module for OCaml. This module tries to
balance minimality and expressiveness for basic, index-free, string processing
and provides types and functions for substrings, string sets and string maps.

Remaining compatible with the OCaml String module is a non-goal. The String
module exposed by Astring has exception safe functions, removes deprecated and
rarely used functions, alters some signatures and names, adds a few missing
functions and fully exploits OCaml's newfound string immutability.
