Investigate ways to minimize VisAD's dependencies on Bio-Formats packages

Right now, VisAD uses several Bio-Formats utility classes, in particular ExtensionFileFilter. It really shouldn't do that, because then new Bio-Formats JARs are not easy to drop into VisAD. Update the VisAD distribution with a new (possibly scaled down) version of Bio-Formats, and eliminate usage of Bio-Formats utility classes where possible. The only hooks should be from LociForm into the ImageReader, and the other deprecated entry points.

I have rearranged and tweaked things to eliminate all unnecessary dependencies on Bio-Formats within VisAD. I have also updated VisAD to include a much more recent version of Bio-Formats (without the loci.formats.test or loci.formats.ome packages).
