Stream writing to a String

This class has the same behavior as BytesWriter except for to_s which decodes bytes to a string.

var writer = new StringWriter

writer.write "Strings "
writer.write_char '&'
writer.write_byte 0x20
writer.write_bytes "bytes".to_bytes

assert writer.to_s == "Strings & bytes"
