Adds HDF5able serialization support to Menpo #427
Serialization of Menpo datatypes has long been on our wishlist (#164, see there for detailed discussion). This PR adds solid serialization support to Menpo in a fundamental way.
The actual meat of this solution is a separate package called hdf5able. This package defines a standardized approach for serializing and de-serializing basic Python types to and from HDF5 files. It also provides a class called
