Provide Argument to Chef Workstation Installer To Opt Out Of Habitat Installation

When we install Chef Workstation it installs Chef Habitat as part of the install. This breaks our Development workstations and Jenkins Agents. Most of the time the version being installed is older than what we are running. Or if there was a problem with that specific version then we don't have it in our Onprem Habitat Builder which causes headaches trying to revert it back to the version we are currently using.

So if you can either not install Habitat by default or make an argument that works with brew, chocolatey, and RPM to omit the Habitat binary installation like --no-habitat it would keep us from having to meet with our developers to fix their workstations and fix broken builds when someone just installs the binary on our Jenkins Agent without knowing it will break our Habitat builds.
