Clean up delegation to legacy readers

For formats that have multiple readers (QuickTime and ND2), we should create a master reader that handles delegation to the legacy reader. For example, the existing QTReader would be moved to NativeQTReader; a new QTReader would then be written to choose between NativeQTReader and LegacyQTReader. All of the delegation logic would then be removed from NativeQTReader and LegacyQTReader.

(In [4906]) Moved native QuickTime reader to QTReader is now the master reader for QuickTime files, and will delegate to NativeQTReader or LegacyQTReader as appropriate. See #362.

(In [4907]) Moved native/legacy reader delegation logic to loci.formats.DelegateReader - QTReader and ND2Reader now extend DelegateReader. Closes #362.
