Drop support for implicit EPS image retrieval when building collection PDFs

Description

When during collection PDF generation non-EPS image files are retrieved for the collection, the pdf gen system will check for the presence of an EPS image with the same base name as the image being retrieved, even if it isn't linked to in the CNXML source. Most modules have no such implicit EPS companion files, and the process of requesting the files and waiting for the 404 is time- and resource-intensive. We will drop support for this behavior after we have identified all content that it might affect.

I've attached a spreadsheet whose first worksheet lists each non-EPS image file for which an EPS file with the same basename exists in the same module, but which EPS file is not used in the module. These would be the cases where an implicit EPS file would be found and used in collection printing, and hence where its presence could conceivably make a difference in the printed version of the content. These would be the authors to notify.

The second worksheet lists the collections in which any affected module appears.

Silly me for my commit message that put this ticket prematurely into testing.
