Another Rust Base58 codec implementation.

Compared to base58 this is significantly faster at decoding (about 2.4x as fast when decoding 32 bytes), almost the same speed for encoding (about 3% slower when encoding 32 bytes), doesn't have the 128 byte limitation and supports a configurable alphabet.

Compared to rust-base58 this is massively faster (over ten times as fast when decoding 32 bytes, almost 40 times as fast when encoding 32 bytes), has no external dependencies and supports a configurable alphabet.
