duckdbfs: High Performance Remote File System, Database and 'Geospatial' Access Using 'duckdb'

Provides friendly wrappers for creating 'duckdb'-backed connections to tabular datasets ('csv', parquet, etc) on local or remote file systems. This mimics the behaviour of "open_dataset" in the 'arrow' package, but in addition to 'S3' file system also generalizes to any list of 'http' URLs.
