Summary: Dynamic loading of individual format modules

Initial Comment:
One slowdown in the current 2.0 code is the delay to load all file format
modules.

A possible solution is to allow fine-grained loading of modules. For
example, some modules are required by all code, and some code (like the
help/usage commands) need to load all modules.

But a simple conversion:

babel -ixyz 'foo.xyz' -opdb 'foo.pdb'

This could only load a few modules (i.e., any required modules,
xyzformat, and pdbformat).

I suspect that as the number of formats increases over time, this will be a
useful performance boost to load formats only as required.
