lx_lib: blurb

lx_lib is meant to be a refined data library, designed for convenience, security, and functionality.

Strings need not be scanned for length requirements, which improves the speed of various string processes many fold. Automatic (re)allocation allows for better security practices, and obviates the common practice of allocating much more than would be necessary. Dynamic allocation aside, including the length and allocation size in each string promotes more secure programming practices and engrained support for the handling of binary code.

Generic descriptors allow for better buffering practices, hence potentially faster reading and writing operations. They also allow for trivial (and fast) delimiter separation during reads.
