Move importers to Plugins Directory (wordpress.org/extend/plugins)

Description

Move importers from core WP to the plugins directory. They are usually used only once and then forgotten. Removing them will reduce the size of the WP distro by 652k. Having them in the plugins directory will allow them to have their own release cycles.

Need to add the importers to the list of files to remove during auto upgrade.

We need to do something similar with the tools.php page as was done in r14759 for the Category/Tag Conversion! :)

Importers were moved, but what about localization of these plugins? There are several hundreds strings which were originally translated, but now they are not in WordPress and they are not in plugins. Translators work was simply deleted?

pot files will be generated and we'll work on a means of porting translations.
