Add option to disable file grouping

The IFormatReader API allows grouping to be disabled for multi-file formats (see setGroupFiles(boolean)). However, this is not exposed in the Bio-Formats plugin for ImageJ. As a result, datasets in multi-file formats (e.g. Zeiss LSM) are always grouped together, which is not always the ideal behavior.

We should add a checkbox to the import options window that calls setGroupFiles(boolean) appropriately.
