Generic cellular data representation library

This library defines a simple type used for efficient streaming of tabular data using coinductive control structures such as pipes, conduit or iteratees.

It was originally a part of pipes-cellular-csv, but was distilled into a separate module to facilitate interaction between different tabular data formats and control structures.

In this structure, each /cell/ of data is annotated with information about its relation to the following cell in the stream, namely /end of cell/, /end of row/ and /end of table/ conditions. In addition, in order to achieve truly-constant memory usage irrespective of individual cell size, we allow individual cells to be subdivided further into /parts/, as indicated by the /end of part/ condition. Logically, this subdivision into parts is supposed to be purely operational and have no semantic significance, similarly to subdivision of lazy bytestrings into chunks.
