gluc/libdes: Encrypt and decrypt using the DES algorithm

Wrapper around the libdes package. The DES algorithm uses a symmetric key of 56bit length. Today, the algorithm is not considered as safe anymore. However, this package can still be useful for interaction with legacy applications, such as Bloomberg Datalicense. Also, use this for very simple and quick encryption and decryption of files and R objects in situations where no military strength security is required.
