Better handling of OME-TIFFs without .ome.tiff extension

Reported by: melissa Owned by: melissa

We always want to parse OME-XML stored in a TIFF file, even if the file extension is not '.ome.tif' or '.ome.tiff'. OMETiffReader.isThisType should check for OME-XML in the TIFF comment, in addition to checking the file extension.
