Support for working with Package Configuration files as described in the Package Configuration v2 design document.
A Dart package configuration file is used to resolve Dart package names (e.g.
foobar) to Dart files containing the source code for that package (e.g.
file:///Users/myuser/.pub-cache/hosted/pub.dartlang.org/foobar-1.1.0). The standard package configuration file is
.dart_tool/package_config.json, and is written by the Dart tool when the command
dart pub get is run.

PackageConfig class and other types needed to use package configurations. This library does not depend on
The package includes deprecated backwards compatible functionality to work with the
.packages file. This functionality will not be maintained, and will be removed in a future version of this package.
