Support for OpenPGP v6 in rPGP

Implement draft-ietf-openpgp-crypto-refresh in rPGP

rPGP is a high-quality implementation of OpenPGP in pure Rust (OpenPGP is a standard for encryption, digital signatures and key management). rPGP is used in production in different contexts, among them the popular "Delta Chat" decentralized and secure messenger that is used by hundreds of thousands of users, worldwide. The OpenPGP standard has recently been revised to reflect current best cryptographic practices. The revision of the standard defines "OpenPGP version 6" and is currently being finalized  for publication as RFC 9580. This project will implement the new formats and features of OpenPGP v6 for rPGP. This will bring the new features of OpenPGP v6 to users of rPGP, and ensures future interoperability with all other modern OpenPGP implementations.
