Compact -S switch in DBMT tool

add a new parameter for dbmt that allows passing in Compact switches to further configure dbmt behavior. Some examples:dbmt db.nsf --compactOptions "-S 10" (only compact the database if there is at least 10 percent whitespace)

    Yes, please add this "-S xx" switch to the DBMT tool. 


    We have a ton of large databases that DBMT spends a lot of time compacting even though they really don't need a compact since their Space usage (often) are well in the 90's. More over we only allow DBMT to run for a few hours every night and sometimes not all databases that needs a compact get compacted due to it spending too much time with databases that are close to optimal in Space usage.
