Respect background parameter in Image constructor #410

This is a long & outstanding issue. Introduced with #184, wand defaults read operations with a transparent background.

# wand.image.Image.__init__
with Color('transparent') as bg:  # FIXME: parameterize this
     result = library.MagickSetBackgroundColor(self.wand, bg.resource)

This can conflicts with a few decoder delegates, and has some odd behavior with ImageMagick-7 that results in "blank" images.

Ideally, the background=... parameter should be respected, rather than a hard coded value. This allows users of vector formats to set canvas colors -- like #360.

Leaving the background unset, by default, also prevents corruption issues with newer versions PDF/TIFF libraries -- like #384, and #352.
