replace quoted:from_url with cowboy_http:urldecode
This change makes the dependency on quoted optional by adding a minimal urldecode function to cowboy. A protocol option for setting the urldecoding function has been added to the cowboy_http_protocol module. The default value for this option is set to be equivalent to the default settings for quoted. {fun cowboy_http:urldecode/2, crash} A note has been added in the README to document how to use quoted instead of this function. A field to store this option value has been added to the state record in the cowboy_http_protocol module and the http_req record in include/http.hrl Functions that previously used quoted:from_url/1 has been updated to require an equivalent function in addition to the previously required arguments. This change removes a C compiler from the build requirements of cowboy. It also removes the requirement to cross compile the code if the target arch/OS is different from the arch/OS used to build it.
