Idiom # 85: Check if integer addition will overflow

See programming-idioms.org:


For all integers with wrap-around semantics (i.e. all the standard types i32, u64, etc.), there are two ways to check for overflow on addition. First, the predicate overflow_on_add checks if an addition of two values would overflow. Next, there is an addition operator infix +? that performs overflow checking and returns a num_option that can be checked afterwards.

Note that infix + would result in a runtime error in case of an overflow if debug checks are enabled. If overflow semantics are desired, operator infix +° has to be used.
