Fix Leica color channel handling

Leica LEI files have multiple image series, often with differing numbers of color channels. Unfortunately, though constituent TIFF files are all RGB, only a subset of those channels are non-zero (that is, they are RGB TIFFs so that they look right to the user, but the zeroed channels are not really part of the raw data). However, in Dundee we discussed the idea of parsing the color names (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow, gray) from the metadata to correctly decide which channels to include in the raw data extraction.
