Add "don't touch" bcfg2.conf option for clients.xml and groups.xml

Description

If you manage your clients.xml and/or groups.xml using some external system, the constant overwriting of these files done by the server can be quite a nuisance.

Bcfg2.conf option which would tell the server to leave these files alone would be a real benefit in such cases.

https://github.com/Bcfg2/bcfg2/commit/8b438fda3ae2d9516dbfb6014c280b68036c17e1 provides the ability to record clients in a database, so clients.xml will not be written. If you use the DBMetadata plugin, it also disables the features that allowed you to use bcfg2-admin to write to groups.xml.
