Some formats take a long time to initialize

Files in some formats - notably Slidebook and Zeiss ZVI - take a very long time to initialize.

A ~600 MB Slidebook file (slidebook/kate/ax2-egcr.sld) takes 2.5 minutes to initialize.

A ~230 MB ZVI file (zeiss-zvi/vladan/vladan.zvi) takes 1.5 minutes to initialize.

It would be nice if we could reduce the initialization times for all files to under a minute.

(In [5018]) Reduced ZVI initialization time and updated the ZVI reader to parse data for ellipse and rectangle ROIs. See #315 and #377.

See ticket #436 for initialization speed of Nikon ND2.
