Include guideline_sl in LArSoft distribution
Some time ago Kyle Knoepfel wrote me:
Are you aware of the guideline support library (UPS product guideline_sl) that provides a span template? There are also plans to add span functionality to the C++ standard in the future. It would be much better to benefit from already existing functionality. If necessary, I bet Lynn could add guideline_sl to the LArSoft distribution.
I was not aware, but anyway
std::span was not what I needed at that time1. It turns out to be useful now.
Hence this request: please distribute
guideline_sl UPS product so that it can be used in LArSoft code (gallery included).
1 Namely, I needed something supporting non-contiguous data spans, which
std::span does not.

This is a header only package. A distribution already exists for guideline_sl v2_0_0, which is the latest release. guideline_sl v2_0_0 has been added to the lar_product_stack build config file and will appear in the next larsoft release.
