This aims to be a substitute for the
readLines function, with the ability to re-encode the input file in a much more robust way, and split the text into lines with
stri_split_lines1 (which conforms with the Unicode guidelines for newline markers).
Because of the way this function is currently implemented, maximal file size cannot exceed ~0.67 GB.
Returns a character vector, each text line is a separate string. The output is always marked as UTF-8.
