In some places in imagej2 code precision can be lost when working with doubles.

Fixed some precision loss problems by supporting getDouble()/setDouble() and getLong()/setLong() in the Dataset implementations, the various DataAccessor classes, and the DatasetDuplicator class in ij2-common.

Note that there still issues with Long data. The SelectionFunctions are organized around doubles. So are the various Unary, Binary, and NAry functions which affects ij2-imglib operations on data. We'll need to think how we want to address Long support.

At the hackathon it was decided that full long support would not be pursued. Since Dataset has changed substantially these long support issues no longer exist.
