FS#633 - Support Panorama on DS620 and DS820 families

DS620 supports 6x14 and 6x20" prints, and DS820 supports 8x18/8x26 and 8x20/8x32 sizes.

Requires submitting 2 or 3 overlapping images, with the overlaps blended/faded. The specifics to handle this are unknown Will probably need to be implemented as a preprocessing tool that takes in the final-sized images and generates 2-3 output images suitable for submitting.

The printers also support a non-overlapping panel panorama feature -- effectively it's 2-3 2x8" panels that aren't separated.

I now have a shell script that naively splits and fades the individual panels. It's probably _very_ inadequate, but it's a start. Still need to write the backend and frontend code.

Some initial gutenprint frontend work.   Still need the backend.

I wonder if it might not be better to have the frontend generate a single large print, and have the backend slice it up instead of requiring the frontend to do all this work first.
