compiler/natives/src/strings: Simple Builder implementation for js ar…


Can't use package unsafe, so use a simple type conversion from []byte
to string in Builder.String method.

Further optimizations are deferred for later (most likely not needed
because Go->wasm will be ready by the time they're needed).

Related to golang/go#18990.
