Parameter file formats

The parameters module handles different parameter file formats.

The original idea was that all parameter files will be converted to a single internal parameter format, the NeuroTools ParameterSet class. This will allow fancy searching/comparisons based on parameters. However, we don’t do this at the moment, the only methods that are used are update() and save()
