Encodes a string name in a hash table, mapping it to a pointer.
This is used to tokenify names so they may be used efficiently in low-level Panda structures, for instance to differentiate the multiple sets of texture coordinates that might be stored on a Geom.
InternalNames are hierarchical, with the '.' used by convention as a separator character. You can construct a single InternalName as a composition of one or more other names, or by giving it a source string directly.
