Optionally disable group inheritance

Gosia Ksionek requested to merge inheritance_experiment into master

What does this MR do?

This MR is introducing small changes that should show if the changes in logic are even possible to achieve without compromising performance.

This experiment aims to show the behaviour and if this is what we are looking for:

  1. groups can be marked as inheritance_disabled - that means they don't inherit members from their parent.
  2. this means members from ancestors groups won't be added to this group or any subproject in this group.
  3. my proposition: not modeled yet: this group should not have children group to keep things easier for now.
