Task #10325 (new)
Introduce ImportSet — at Initial Version

Currently the hierarchy is:
/Fileset -> /OriginalFile collection -> /Image collection
The issue is that on import clients may not know what all is contained in the fileset, and therefore there will need to be a "pulling apart" (or the use of a DirectoryReader in Bio-Formats which reads everything a la ImportCandidates).
If the import action of the clients creates a ImportSet rather than a Fileset, there will be fewer overall top-level containers, and the server can adjust the Filesets as necessary. (NB: It would be important the clients could delete a single fileset from that import set)
The new hierarchy might look something like:
/ImportSet -> /OriginalFile collection -> /Fileset collection -> /Image collection -> /OriginalFile collection (reused pointers?)
Jean-Marie has raised the issue that we will need to also examine how we deal with multi-image filesets, possibly linking Fileset under Dataset, though this cannot be done for the demo. In which case, we may want to omit ImportSet (i.e. this ticket) as well.
