Add option to remove a submit script from a configuration

Since a submit script is optional for a configuration, there needs to be an option to remove a submit script from a configuration. Either --submitscript= (no script given) or --no-submitscript would be good ways to do this.

I just checked, and --submitscript= does nothing -- this is not good; it should probably lead to an error.

    I have extended python's optparse library to include a new type called 'nonnull'. In the options/*.ini files, if you set the argtype to be nonnull it will give an error now if you specify an option like --submitscript=<blank>

    here's the example output below:

    varia:simfactory mike$ bin/sim build --submitscript= Usage: sim.py [args] command

    sim.py: error: option --submitscript: argument cannot be null

    As far as the first part of this bug goes, i'm still working on that. I'll close this bug when i have it completed.

    added new command remove-submitscript that will remove a stored submit script from a configuration.

    Also added the --no-submitscript argument, which will remove a stored submitscript if one exists, and then also skip the code to setup a submitscript for the configuration.
