modffi: Describe typecodes where they differ from used by struct module.

Exact behavior of typecodes may be not yet enforced.

* modffi uses character codes to encode a value type, based on "struct"
* module type codes, with some extensions and overridings.
* Extra/overridden typecodes:
* v - void, can be used only as return type
* P - const void*, pointer to read-only memory
* p - void*, meaning pointer to a writable memory (note that this
* clashes with struct's "p" as "Pascal string").
* s - as argument, the same as "p", as return value, causes string
* to be allocated and returned, instead of pointer value.
* Note: all constraint specified by typecode can be not enforced at this time,
* but may be later.
