This is a request to have a trio of functions in druntime, that do what memchr
does, but also for 1-byte, 2-byte and 4-byte widths (and maybe 8 bytes too).

The issue with C's wmemchr is that works on `wchar_t`, which may be either a
wchar or dchar, making it horribly difficult to use in a generic way (or at
all).

Having these methods in druntime would be able to do memory wise search in a
much easier fashion.

It would also have the advantage of:
- accept a "const(void)[]" as input, so using them is "just safe".
- have a __ctfe branch, so no special branches need to be deployed by the
caller: It "just works".

Not sure which druntime (or phobos?) library it would go into. Also, a rename
might help, to avoid ambiguity "[cwdl]memsearch?"

Speaking of which, will this be reopened?
