this has been requested a few times on the forum, e.g. for a special
sync job for the most important groups, or seeding of a new datastore
with a partial view of an existing one.

while it's possible to achieve similar results with hacky workarounds
based on group ownership and reduced "visibility", implementing it
properly is not that complex.

possible future additions in a similar fashion:
    - exclude filters
    - filtering in other API calls (tape, listing groups/snapshots)
    - only sync/pull encrypted snapshots (less trusted off-site
    - only sync/pull latest snapshot in each group (fast seeding of new

not changed: BackupGroup was not pulled into api-types - we can still
re-evaluate this at some point if we want to switch the split api
parameters we currently have, but at the moment this would mean lots of
churn for a very small gain.

changed since v2:
- implement UpdaterType for Vec<T> in proxmox-schema, simplify proxmox-backup patches
- pull parameters into struct
- added patch for flipped remove-vanished default

changed since v1:
- reworked filter to support different types, rebased
- dropped last patch
- add docs patch
