bitsqueezr: Quantize Floating-Point Numbers for Improved Compressibility

Provides a implementation of floating-point quantization algorithms for use in precision-preserving compression, similar to the approach taken in the 'netCDF operators' (NCO) software package and described in Zender (2016) <doi:10.5194/gmd-2016-63>.
