Add CLI option to exclude specific schema/custom tests

Feature description

Currently dbt does not allow using tags with tests. Suggest adding functionality to tag tests like model to allow using exclude in dbt test.
Also recommend modifying existing dbt compile output behaviour to generate names (and scripts) of tests in folder target so users can access those names and use exclude on them more easily.

Who will this benefit?

Some tests take significant time to complete and adding tags functionality would give users more flexibility with test scheduling.
