SixtyFPS UI Library

The biggest chunk of work this week was internal to the compiler: The LLR (low level representation) branch has landed. By combining a set of steps that used to be done in binding-specific code for Rust and C++ separately into one common code base, we were able to clean up our implementation, speed up property look-ups and simplify the language specific code a lot. This helps us to maintain the SixtyFPS compiler and should also reduce the amount of work necessary to add new features going forward.
