make deprecations respect warnings filters and add --ignore-pants-war…

…nings option (#7496)

### Problem

#7493 solved its problem by converting an error to a warning, but it's not likely that a large monorepo is going to be able to solve that particular issue anytime soon. So while we would like to be able to deprecate the `--strict` option in that PR, we don't think it's reasonable to have a deprecation warning showing for the strict option immediately. But not every pants user is a large monorepo, so we would like to be able to do the right upstream thing (add a deprecation warning) while allowing downstream users to defer showing specific warnings in a structured way.

### Solution

- Add an `--ignore-pants-warnings` global bootstrap option, which calls [`warnings.filterwarnings()`]( to filter warning messages by regex matching.
- Make `warn_or_error()` in `` use `warnings.warn_explicit()`, because it turns out that `warnings.showwarning()` doesn't respect the warning filters at all (oops!).

### Result

It's possible to filter out specific warnings with an option, and it's possible to do that to deprecation warnings now as well.
