EliasFanoCompression: quasi-succinct compression of sorted integers in C#

Elias-Fano encoding is quasi succinct, which means it is almost as good as the best theoretical possible compression scheme for sorted integers. While it can be used to compress any sorted list of integers, we will use it for compressing posting lists of inverted indexes. Based on a research paper by Sebastiano Vigna: http://vigna.di.unimi.it/ftp/papers/QuasiSuccinctIndices.pdf
