     *   improved parsing of detector gain values
     *   removed OME-XML validation errors by fixing potential for duplicate detector IDs
     *   removed invalid XML failures for Modulo label elements
     *   time increment metadata now populated on Pixels element
     *   fix to deal with consecutive empty planes in a series (thanks to Nicholas Trahearn)

     *   fixed calculation for scanline padding
  *   Kodak BIP
