Update Bio-Formats in VisAD repository

Reported by: curtis Owned by: curtis

Blocking: #1169


The VisAD repository has a very old LGPL version of Bio-Formats. With VisAD's new SVN repository, combined with the bf-core refactoring (see ticket #100), it should be straightforward to update VisAD to include bio-formats-core.jar as a dependency, rather than having a copy of the source code inline.

It would be fairly easy to develop a PR (to  Julien Chastang's GitHub version of VisAD, which also Mavenizes the project) that reworks the Bio-Formats dependency to use the BSD-2-licensed SCIFIO component at compile-time, with an optional Bio-Formats runtime dependency. However, we must be careful that the GitHub version of VisAD does not diverge from the official SVN one.

Ultimately, what we really want is to migrate VisAD to Git/GitHub. There has been some discussion of this among the VisAD core developers, but Julien and I would need to take point on it. Unfortunately, there are currently too many higher-priority ImageJ2-related tasks, so this work will have to wait until we have more VisAD-based functionality within ImageJ2.

VisAD has now  migrated to GitHub, so this work could be done as a pull request.
