Support for non-rectilinear coordinate systems

ImageJ currently supports rectangular images with calibration, but it would be nice to have a standard mechanism for associating coordinate systems or other domain set metadata with an image.

For more information see the thread " Coordinate systems" on the ImageJX discussion group.

The ImgLib2 design can accommodate functional transforms between coordinate systems.

In theory, ImgLib2 RealViews will provide the functionality we need. But we also need ImageJ2 to actually *handle* the data properly. We currently have no use cases for this, so this feature is a low priority, but this ticket will remain open to keep track of the current status.
