doc: add documentation for OPT_STRING_LIST
Commit c8ba16391655 ("parse-options: add OPT_STRING_LIST helper", 2011-06-09) added the OPT_STRING_LIST as a way to accumulate a repeated list of strings. However, this was not documented in the api-parse-options documentation. Add documentation now so that future developers may learn of its existence.
