Port to PDAL

IMHO we could try to IFDEF libLAS/PDAL code in and make PDAL/LibLAS exclusive options in configure. Thus transition from libLAS to PDAL would be seamless for ordinary users.

I would love to see any progress on it as I got hit by an old issue returning on Ubuntu Disco with libLAS C API code resulting in a segfault and thus far I haven't been able to figure out how to work around it.
