Imager tiff support
Imager's tiff support has been greatly extended to:
- add support for large sample sizes, Imager can now read and write 16 and 32-bit/sample RGB and greyscale images and manipulate them.
- read and write bi-level images
- allow selection of the compression used for the image.
- work around some bugs in various versions of libtiff's RGBA image support, in particular alpha channel handling for grey and cmyk images.
This is a large change, so I've released Imager 0.61_02 as a test release. If you use Imager with TIFF much, please give it a go.
I'm planning on a 0.62 release in a week or so.
