Fast string direction detection

Description

Applications need to be able to detect the paragraph level direction of a string in order to properly set up user interface components. This direction can currently be derived from ubidi_getParaLevel, but at the substantial cost of initializing a UBidi object.

We'd like to add a function that determines the paragraph level direction of a string without creating a UBidi object. To give callers control over the handling of strings with no strong direction, the function should allow for a NEUTRAL result value in addition to LTR and RTL values.
