Add ability to filter jobs by some meta-data

Registered by Dan on 2014-03-31

Currently, a subscriber to a jobboard will receive every job posted to that board. For some use-cases, it will be desirable for a jobboard subscriber to only receive some subset of those jobs, based on some filtering mechanism. This would allow jobboard consumers (conductors) to have a bit more flexibility.

We could implement this by adding some meta-data property to a job (such as "topic"), and give JobBoard.iterjobs a kwarg (such as "topic='something'") to filter for this meta-data property.
