Add source string metadata to ImgPlus

For saving a file, it is nice to know where it came from. We should add a "String source" metadata field to ImgPlus, which gets populated by the ImgOpener, that the ImgSaver can then reference in case of File > Save to overwrite the same file. File > Save As would also update this field with the new filename.

Two parts to this:

  1. Add the field to ImgPlus
  2. Update ImgOpener to populate the field

Also, ticket #649 will utilize it as described above.
