Add support for writing BigTIFF files

We should somehow allow writing of BigTIFF/BigOME-TIFF files - either add a flag and corresponding get/set methods to TiffWriter, or add logic to saveBytes that detects when the file is "too big" and automatically switches to BigTIFF.

r3796. TiffWriter has new method called setBigTiff(boolean) that toggles whether BigTIFF is written. If BigTIFF is desired, setBigTiff(true) must be called before the writer is initialized.
