Generalise parallel loops - piter() #2628

Cython currently restricts OpenMP loops to integer iteration using cython.parallel.prange().

A more general cython.parallel.piter() to wrap iterables would allow extending this to C++ iteration, C arrays, bytes/unicode buffers and direct memory view iteration (currently not implemented). Except for C++ iteration (which the C++ compiler can handle), all of these cases are mapped to integer iteration internally and would thus be converted to a normal prange() loop by Cython.
