[ELPA] New package: dired-du

New library implementing a Dired interface for `du'.

This library defines a minor mode `dired-du-mode' to display
the recursive size of directories in Dired buffers.  This mode
uses the external `du' program when available.  Otherwise, it
performs a rough estimation with Lisp.

In addition, this file provides a command `dired-du-count-sizes',
to show the total size of the marked files.  By default, it shows
the size of the files marked with `dired-marker-char'.   If `dired-du-mode'
is disabled, then ignores the size of directories.  Otherwise, it takes
in account the size of the dirs.
When called with a prefix prompts for the marks and asks if the dirs must
be taken in account.

The idea of this library arose after bugs 22829 and 22892.

Some people have shown interest on this feature elsewhere:

The file is available for inspection in the following Elpa repo. branch:
