Ability to migrate just configuration, no content
Sometimes we have to transfer domains with very large data. By the time the migration has finished (a few hours later) a lot of the data is out of sync. So we have to manually rsync the data across again.
Therefore, we would request the option to just migrate domain configuration and no data. So just set up the domain, all mailboxes subdomains etc.. but leave all content behind. Basically just a skeleton of the domain.

this can currently be accomplished with the -c flag on pleskbackup:
/usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup domains-name $domain -c -v --skip-logs --output-file=/var/configbackup.$domain.tar
but, this is not an option with the migration manager yet. I would like to see this too, as it would permit me to then sync data outside of pmm without having to wait for it to package, compress, transfer, and then decompress and move the data. This can be accomplished with a separate rsync, which saves space and time.
