Right now this importer skips over carousel posts entirely. #42 partially fixes this by making it not skip it and at least import the cover photo and link.

I'm working on a followup PR that handles that + imports all of the media, but I'm not sure what the best way to display the media is.

Creating a WP gallery makes sense if it's all photos, but they don't seem to support videos, so they would need to go somewhere. The built-in video metadata only allows for a single video, so it wouldn't capture everything if the carousel has more than one video.

Any suggestions?

import carousels and their content
This is a fairly basic import - the first image (or screenshot if it starts with a video) will be displayed in the post, the others are imported to the server and saved in the post metadata but not automatically included in the post.

Partially Fixes jtsternberg#43, and superceds / fixes jtsternberg#42

Import carousels and their content
* Adds support for importing carousel-type posts
* downloads all images and video
* adds them to the post metadata (call get_post_meta() with  $single = false to get an array of all)
* sets the featured image to match the what instagram shows (either the first picture, or the first frame if it's a movie)

This doesn't automatically insert the extra content into the post (yet). I'm doing it with a hook, but I think we need to figure out a better way to make that a built-in feature.
