Allow bfconvert file patterns to use configurable number of digits

Each of the replaceable number fields should allow a user-specified number of digits, so that e.g.

bfconvert input.ome.tiff output_%ssss.tiff

writes files name output_0000.tiff, output_0001.tiff, ...

Using "%s4" or similar instead would also be an option.

No ongoing work here; this is primarily a string parsing and formatting issue, as bfconvert itself shouldn't need to be changed. The two methods to update would be and This may end up being breaking, so if not possible for 5.2.0 it's likely best to push to 5.3.0.

%[width][field type] similar to is probably nicer to work with than "%ssss" or "%s4" or similar, but feel free to use whatever seems easiest to parse. The main thing is being able to specify the 0- (for numeric) or whitespace- (for string) padded width for any currently-supported field in the filename, and maintain backwards compatibility with existing behavior as much as possible. "docs/sphinx/users/comlinetools/conversion.txt" will also need to be updated with the new width syntax.
