Pidigits version using a cobegin

[reviewed / co-developed by @ronawho]

Elliot realized that the previous begin-based version put two tasks on locale 0,
and we also discussed in the perf meeting that the three begin statements felt
a bit clunky. Both of those can be resolved with a cobegin statement which is
what we do here.

Interesting variations on this version might include:

  • using a monitor/condition variable library abstraction to coordinate between the

  • using a context manager pattern for the waitFor...write patterns in the task routines

  • using begins/futures to launch tasks for each subcomputation rather than setting
    an existing task free (for an elegance::performance tradeoff)
