Add restore --latest flag to use latest backup

As it stands now, grabbing the latest backup involves some Shell script grabbing the list, getting the last line of the list command, and grabbing the timestamp from it to get the folder name of the latest backup.  It would be great to add a --latest flag which just grabs the latest backup without needing to decide what backup is actually the latest, or use awk/sed/tr to grep it from the "chef-automate backup list" command.
