Remove IFormatReader.openImage in favor of BufferedImageReader class

Any reference to AWT classes can cause problems on certain systems, especially headless or Mac OS X systems. For the next release, we should remove the IFormatReader.openImage methods to keep the core Bio-Formats API free from AWT references.

To provide the same functionality, we can create a ReaderWrapper extension called BufferedImageReader that provides an openImage method, similar to loci.plugins.util.ImagePlusReader for openProcessors.
