GDAL importer

Hash: SHA1

I've added a GDAL based "generic" importer to COAN. There is a pre-built
GDAL library (win32 only) on the coan sourceforge page. This importer
will load raster imagery from any GDAL supported format including
metadata. Metadata is copied as raw strings with no interpretation. It's
only partially tested and will only load BSQ (you can always convert if
you load in memory)...this and some other efficiency concerns make this
a good importer for file types which Opticks does not natively support.
The auto importer file affinity is the same as the generic hdf5 importer
so it should not automatically override a native importer. There's a
good chance this one will make it into the opticks core so I'd
appreciate feedback.
