Add puppet.conf for process priority of puppetd

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA: https://tickets.puppetlabs.com
It would be nice (no pun intended) to have a puppet.conf option that would specify the priority of the puppetd process. It appears that Ruby has a Process.setpriority that would do this. This way we wouldn’t have to worry about maintaining separate methods to set priority (whether SMF, SRC, /etc/init.d/puppet or otherwise).
