New tap for php extensions from pecl registry

With PHP 7.4 fast approaching and upstream’s intent to deprecate and eventually remove the option to build the package installers pear and pecl, I’ve reassessed my opinion of not keeping formulae for these commonly installed extensions.

I don’t know if there will ever be interest in returning these to a homebrew-core supported tap, but I’ve committed to maintaining a new tap: kabel/pecl

If anything, putting this tap together has helped me to better understand the challenges of developing a CI system for bottles. Thankfully Azure Pipelines worked out for me and I’ve got bottles to macOS n-1.

Looks good, I might make some PRs to port my own similar formulae.
