[Haskell-cafe] Package takeover: bencoding

I'd like to take over maintainership of the bencoding package [1].

The package was not updated to work with ghc 8.0 and will likely require
more fixes to work with ghc 8.4 and some work to make a Stackage
release. There's a PR open for GHC 8.0, but it's still open for a year
and a half [2]. I've tried to ask the author in the PR thread to make me
a maintainer in January but it still hasn't happened.
