New kipi-plugin: Automatically remove red-eyes (in batch mode)

Some years ago, we had an addition to our family and I took a lot of photos in that time. During the months I had taken nearly 2000 images of the newborn, but most of them had red-eyes on it.
This happens quite a lot with little children since their pupils don't close that fast and the light of the camera flash is reflected by the eye.
