Long overdue, I have finally committed the initial version of the odata
package in the FPC repository.

This package provides the base for OData integration in your applications.
OData is a standard adopted by the OASIS group: it describes data exchange
through REST APIs. OData V4 and OData V2 are supported.

The workings of the OData integration are demonstrated in the conversion of
the MS Office365 Unified REST API. (MS Graph).

This allows seamless integration of all Office365 components in your

Additionally, the (huge) Sharepoint Online REST API (which uses V2 of
the OData protocol) has also been converted.

All this, with some sample programs and the conversion tool for OData
metadata files, is committed in FPC's subversion, revision 34097.

Suggestions, testing: all welcome.
