Ability to backup and restore a single table or a list of tables

Today, MemSQL supports the ability to do a full backup or incremental backup. The full backup includes all of the data in a given database, and the incremental backup captures the delta.

Some tables in a production workload may be more critical than others, so it would be useful to add the ability to the backup and restore a specific table or a set of tables. This functionality should be introduced as an argument or option when using both the SQL client backup command and the management utilities (e.g., memsql-admin create-backup)
