omnib should have an option to select a large list of files

Brief description:

The omnib command should have an option to select a large list of files (millions) with an absolute path on a client for backup. Creating a datalist with 10000+ of lines is not a valid workaround since datalist parsing issues will occur in GUI and BSM.

Benefit:

Allow customer to use Data Protector in situations where an external software assembles a finite list of files to backup. This is for all the situations where include/exclude/skip is not good enough.
