    ENH: improve hashing overloads of string-types and HashTable/HashSet · 95cd8ee7

    - additional dummy template parameter to assist with supporting
      derived classes. Currently just used for string types, but can be
    - provide hash specialization for various integer types.
      Removes the need for any forwarding.
    - change default hasher for HashSet/HashTable from 'string::hash'
      to `Hash<Key>`. This avoids questionable hashing calls and/or
      avoids compiler resolution problems.
      For example,
      HashSet<label>::hasher and labelHashSet::hasher now both properly
      map to Hash<label> whereas previously HashSet<label> would have
      persistently mapped to string::hash, which was incorrect.
    - standardize internal hashing functors.
      Functor name is 'hasher', as per STL set/map and the OpenFOAM
      HashSet/HashTable definitions.
      Older code had a local templated name, which added unnecessary
      clutter and the template parameter was always defaulted.
      For example,
          Old:  `FixedList<label, 3>::Hash<>()`
