[ELPA] New package: delight.el

I would like to propose my delight.el library for inclusion in
GNU ELPA (or as a standard Emacs library if that is of interest).

Delight enables you to easily customise how major and minor modes
appear in the mode line.

It was inspired by a well-known library called Diminish which
facilitates the same thing for minor modes only. I wrote Delight
because I wanted something which also supported major modes, as well
as a more concise syntax for configuration (in particular, something
which didn't necessitate writing an explicit call to eval-after-load
to handle unloaded modes).

Detailed documentation and examples are in the commentary, and at:

The source code is now maintained at:

(For GNU ELPA I would use an external/subtree approach with this
new Savannah repository.)

n.b. At one point someone submitted a melpa recipe for the EmacsWiki
source, and so this has also been available via melpa for some time,
but I'd prefer it to be on GNU ELPA.

I could potentially include delight-powerline.el as well.
That's a small integration library I wrote on request so that
Delight would work with the various "Powerline" libraries out there
on github and melpa and the like. I'm not sure whether there are
conventions to follow regarding GNU ELPA packages integrating with
non-GNU libraries, so I've left it out for now.
