Script flag to not update the updated_at field

Batch updating many records via the Python API can be full of heavy admin/behind-the-scenes stuff which causes the 'Date Updated' field to be updated.  

Of course, this is technically the correct behavior, but it can throw off sorting and filtering for people who use the updated_at field to know when to respond to things.

We've had a request to add a flag to the API that would NOT update the updated_at field to help with those sorts of workflows.

Let us know if this is something that would be useful for you by voting for this or leaving a comment.

    I guess the flag would also skip updating the 'updated_by' field.
