"Perlito" MiniPerl6 4.0 - string-eval, more bootstraps

[ #40255 ]
Perlito is a subset of Perl 6, which was designed as a light bootstrapping language.

Changelog for version 4.0:

- Go backend bootstrap.

The Go backend was updated to the latest Go language spec.

- Perl5 backend optimized; 30% faster

- More library functions, added to all backends

- New '' module - implements a MiniPerl6 interpreter in MiniPerl6.

This should add some debugging capabilities later on.

- New test suite. See README on how to use 'prove' for each backend.

- New compiler options to create binary executables

- Currently the stable backends are: Perl5, Javascript, JVM, Lisp, Go.

See README for bootstrapping instructions for all backends.

- Removed support for features that are not standard Perl6.

Thanks to pmurias++ for helping test this release.
