Add hpx::start/hpx::stop to avoid blocking main thread #563

The current use of hpx::init blocks the thread useed to call this function until the HPX runtime system has been stopped. Sometimes it is desirable to leave the calling thread running (GUI applications). We should split hpx::init into two separate functions hpx::start and hpx::stop, where the call to hpx::start is non-blocking. hpx::stop has still to wait for the runtime system to exit.
