uncompressed OutBamFile

In libbam one can set the compression level, and e.g. 'u' in mode encodes for uncompressed output. This is useful especially when piping to to another program and it is desirable to avoid compression/decompression.

samtools accepts a char (as third letter in mode string) that decides the compression level. This char must either be a digit - '9'? or 'u' where the latter is an alias for '0'. I believe default is 6 but that is probably depending on libz and might be configurable (who knows). We currently have a constructor

OutBamFile(string, BamHeader)

I suggest we add another constructor taking a third argument (and an equivalent open function). This third argument should either be unsigned int or a char. For the former we require that the number is in range [0-9] (otherwise throw) and translate it to correct char so we can inject into mode[2]. If we prefer char in our interface, we can just copy the char directory into mode (after checking validity, of course).
