future.mirai: A 'Future' API for Parallel Processing using 'mirai'

Implementation of the 'Future' API <doi:10.32614/RJ-2021-048> on top of the 'mirai' package <doi:10.5281/zenodo.7912722>. This allows you to process futures, as defined by the 'future' package, in parallel out of the box, on your local machine or across remote machines. Contrary to back-ends relying on the 'parallel' package (e.g. 'multisession') and socket connections, 'mirai_cluster' and 'mirai_multisession', provided here, can run more than 125 parallel R processes.
