Make codecs discoverable

In order to more easily extend video codec support, we could make the implementations of the Codec interface discoverable with SezPoz?.

It would also be useful to update the relevant readers (AVI, QT, TIFF?) to make use of this, so that the readers do not need to be updated each time support for a new codec is added.

This would be an advantage of building on top the SCIFIO library; see:

In SCIFIO, a Codec is a SciJava? singleton plugin, managed by a CodecService.

Alternately, you could lean on SciJava? Common (which has been out of beta for over a year now) and just lift the SCIFIO Codec implementation wholesale into the Bio-Formats codebase.

Either way, you would have the advantage of a SciJava? Common based extensibility mechanism, which could then benefit other aspects of the Bio-Formats codebase too, notably the file formats themselves.
