Support for colorized grayscale images

SLIM Plugin uses a colorized grayscale image to present fitted values. There is no built-in support for this type.

It would be good to have built-in support to make this easier to implement for others.

The probe tool breaks with my colorized grayscale image.

The Organ of Corti is an example of a RGBK image, which might be a useful internal representation. (I'm baffled why O. of C. is RGBK.)

SLIM plugin takes two floating point value images and combines them: The first (photon count) gives a grayscale level, the second (fitted parameter) colorizes the pixels with a LUT.

Replying to aivar:

I'm baffled why O. of C. is RGBK.

Using RGBK is the default for representing a 4 channel image. It works for Organ of Corti since the areas for each channel don't overlap so much. If they did there would be ambiguity from R+G+B grays versus K grays.
