Targeting utilities for compilers and related tools

This is a library for managing targets for compilers and related tools.

Currently, the main feature is support for decoding "triples", which are strings that identify a particular target configuration. This library provides a Triple struct containing enums for each of fields of a triple. Triple implements FromStr and fmt::Display so it can be converted to and from the conventional string representation of a triple.

Triple also has functions for querying a triple's endianness, pointer bit width, and binary format.

And, Triple and the enum types have host() constructors, for targeting the host.

It supports all triples currently used by rustc and rustup.
