bug#9429: 24.0.50; Extended count-words

After feature freeze please add a new command `wc' that works like
coreutils's command `wc' and bind it to `M-='.

Currently `M-=' is bound to `count-lines-region' that contrary to its name
prints the number of *characters* and lines.  At least with the name `wc'
it will be consistent with the well-known shell command `wc' that counts
lines, words and bytes.

`man wc' says that it counts bytes, not characters.  So `wc' (`M-=')
could also report bytes in addition to characters, e.g.

  Region has 1 line, 22 words, 35 characters, 38 bytes
