Requirements on an implementation of the base field.

There are many ways to implement field arithmetic in the base field of integers modulo 2**255 - 19.

This trait specifies our requirements, such that end users can experiment with their own ideas.

This crate, as of now, offers two implementations:

Planned: Schoolbook: our own attempt at a fast yet readable implementation

Originally, the plan was to have everything generic over the field implementation, so far we have not been successful in convincing the Rust compiler of this. Therefore, currently the implementations must be selected at compile time using feature flags.
