Integer#digits for extracting digits of place-value notation in any base

Description

I sometimes want to extract digits of place-value notation of integer numbers.

For example:

12345.digits      #=> [5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
12345.digits(100) #=> [45, 23, 1]

One typical use case is calculating checksum digit.
I found some code extracting digits by the way like int.to_s.chars.map(&:to_i).

Introducing Integer#digits can reduce needless string allocation in such cases.

The patch was pushed into the repository in github.

I wanted such method to encode integer in some binary format.
(I cannot remember concrete example.)
For example, pack("w") can be implementd using Integer#digits.
