Defines functions fread.comethylation

Documented in fread.comethylation

## TODO: If this function is exported then need to add data.table and R.utils
## to Imports in DESCRIPTION.
## TODO: Profile. Reading file is _super_fast, but construction of CoMeth 
## object is slow. So, profile code and remove bottlenecks. 

#' A faster version of \code{\link{read.comethylation}}
#' 
#' Uses \code{data.table::fread} for faster reading of \code{comethylation} 
#' \code{.tsv} output files. See https://github.com/PeteHaitch/cometh/issues/18 
#' for benchmarking and a discussion of pros and cons of this approach.
#' Currently uses R.utils::gunzip to handle gzip files and gunzip-s these to 
#' a temporary directory, which is created by tempdir().
