Reporter importer plug-in displays 'Reporter ID' when setting column mappings... should be 'External ID'

Description

In reporter listings there is no 'Reporter ID' column and it takes some effort to understand that when one creates a configuration for the reporter importer one must set 'Reporter ID' to actually import 'External ID' information.

This is somewhat speculative. It may be that 'External ID' is set locally for our server (using configuration files) that is we have a situation unique for our facility installation? Should we change 'External ID' column header to 'Reporter ID' or is it possible to change the configuration dialogue to match local settings?

This is on line 131 in ReporterFlatFileImporter?: http://base.thep.lu.se/browser/trunk/src/plugins/core/net/sf/basedb/plugins/ReporterFlatFileImporter.java#L131

The same issue is present in the RawDataFlatFileImporter? and possible also other importers that uses reporter information.

(In [4626]) Fixes #1164: Reporter importer plug-in displays 'Reporter ID' when setting column mappings... should be 'External ID'

Decided to keep 'Reporter ID' on other plug-ins and only calrify the description since if using 'External ID' it is not clear what this references (eg. spot external id, feature external id...)
