This patch adds a header file to forward declare string, pmc and interpreter types to avoid the use of different declarations in core and in extensions/embedding, allowing better type checking by C and C++ compilers. Also moves Parrot_compile_string to embed.h as suggested in the embed draft pdd.

This change will allow embedding without including inappropriate headers or fake PARROT_IN_CORE defines.
