      Allow db management to be disabled

      Pull Request Description


      I'm configuring PuppetDB to connect to a third-party remote DB (Amazon RDS), so I've set `$manage_server` to `false`. That lead to this error from the Postgresql module (because the server isn't in my catalog):

      > Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Invalid relationship: Postgresql_psql[Check for existence of db 'puppetdb']

      { require => Class[Postgresql::Server::Service] }

      , because Class[Postgresql::Server::Service] doesn't seem to be in the catalog

      After digging in I found that despite disabling `$manage_server`, the module still tries to create the db/user.

      I would probably have argued that `$manage_server` should affect db/user management too, but in the interest of backward compatibility I've instead added a new option to manage that independently (`$manage_db`), and preserved the current behavior by default.
