[smokeping-users] Adding targets on-demand

Have your provisioning script add the new target configs to a different 
directory that is NOT @include-d in your config, then move them into 
/etc/smokeping/mynodes/ hourly, right before the service reload.  
Basically queueing updates so you don't break the UI.
