An elixir bencoding package

It's intended for the [`yolandi`]( torrent client


 That's a learning exercise for me in elixir/erlang, so the code is still not clean and non idiomatic

 Bencode format supports 4 types of data: numbers, dictionaries and lists.
 `Bencoder` uses elixir's `Integer`, `Map`, `List` and `BitString`.


 Bencoder.encode(2) # "i2e"
 Bencoder.encode([4, 202]) # "li4ei202ee"

 Bencoder.decode("4:life") # "life"
 Bencoder.decode("d4:lifei42ee") # %{"life" => 42}
 Bencoder.decode("i42e") # 42
 Bencoder.decode("l1:~e") # ["~"]
