[aur-general] Merge request: imagej

as I already explained to Michael Schubert, ImageJ plugins must be installed 
into some specified plugin directory to be found. 
In order to allow users manually installing plugins locally, the original 
package creates a plugin directory structure in the $HOME.
The rational of making imagej-shared was to have a clean package without an 
error prone launch script but forcing plugins to be installed into 
/usr/share/... preferably by making a archlinux package for each plugin.
But there are really many plugins, so this method has its inconvenients as 
well, so it doesn't seem easy to decide which one is better.

Before just "merging" the two packages - you actually just deleted mine - did 
you make sure the imagej-plugin-* packages continue working?
