Investigate improving AVI support based on new AVI_Reader

Michael Schmid created an updated AVI_Reader for ImageJ that fixes a number of problems:

New features (w.r.t. the AVI Reader at the ImageJ Web site):
 - support for several other formats added, especially some YUV
  (aka YCbCr) formats
 - uneven chunk sizes, negative biHeight and audio or second
  video stream don't cause a problem.
 - can read part of a file (specify start & end frame numbers)
 - can convert YUV and RGB to 8-bit
 - can flip vertically
 - can create a virtual stack
 - added slice label: time of the frame in the movie
 - added a public method 'getStack' that does not create an
  image window
There are still quite a few restrictions, however. Some unusual
or complex avi types are not handled correctly. See the notes in
the source code for details.
