Port cinnamon's use of PIL to support Pillow for F19

Patch to use the form of import of PIL that is pillow compatible
Fedora 19 is going to stop shipping python-imaging (PIL) and start shipping python-pillow instead. Rationale can be found on the feature page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Pillow . pillow should be compatible with PIL at the code level but the import statement changes slightly.
PIL supports both of these:
from PIL import Image
Pillow only supports the latter form.
I grepped through the cinnamon source and found some occurrences of "import Image". I'll attach a patch that updates these to the new form of import.
If I don't hear anything back from you, I'll go ahead and use provenpackager powers to apply this patch to the RawHide package next week. I'll leave sending the patch to upstream up to you, though.

I was waiting for python-pillow to be packaged but I note you added a virtual provides to python-imaging the other day.

Cool. New Cinnamon package built for rawhide.
