In my application I had a rather complicated use case where I had to exclude anonymous actors (created for Akka asks) from generating Kamon metrics. I found this very cumbersome to do based on the GlobPathFilter so I created this PR.
Putting it up here for discussion (e.g. to see if you're interested). Obviously some things are left to be done (e.g. end-user documentation).

@danbim please add the kamon copyright header.
@danbim the PR looks good for me, i've left a comment. I would like to merge it BUT there is one missing piece, not in this repository but in our documentation website! yes, I know, it is a bit boring to write docs but it is a necessary thing... so if you could change the filtering-entities documentation in oder to reflect this change it would be amazing.
I'll update the docs soon!
@danbim thanks for proposing this PR!!!
