Optional flag in API calls to ignore trigger qualification

Optional flag in API calls to ignore trigger qualification

Should at least apply to importlead if not other REST API endpoints too, but an optional flag for ignoreTriggers would allow for a mass data update and give a customer an option to ignore qualifications to Trigger Campaigns.

Use case: a data fixup via REST importLead would have a primary purpose of reconciling data/fixing data that was accidentally changed, but changing it again could result in trigger and/or campaign processing backlogs when these aren't really meant to be new values and just reverting back to older values.

activity log items would probably need to indicate that ignoretrigger was set to true or something

This feature would be extremely helpful when executing a bulk process to consolidate duplicate records.  We run periodic deduping in SFDC and allow the SFDC to Marketo sync to update and consolidate in Marketo.  When you perform this consolidation the smart campaign triggers execute which can send communications, alert notification to Sales Reps for example.
