Add support for reading/writing multi-page EPS files

Bio-Formats currently cannot read or write multi-page EPS files. Since the EPS format supports multiple image planes per file, it makes sense to update the reader and writer to handle this.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

From the EPS specification (specs/eps/eps.pdf):

"An encapsulated PostScript file is a PostScript language program describing the appearance of a single page."

Given that support for multiple pages is not defined in the specification (and we have no examples of multi-page EPS files), it doesn't make sense to add this to Bio-Formats.
