[core] Add systemd service file and other default config files for di…


See contrib/README for more information.
Also modified to support a new config key in [core]:
not_configured will cause the bot to refuse running if set to true.
This is useful to force users to configure the bot before trying to run it as the config wizard is not ideal for willie running as a service.

+This folder contains willie.service and willie.cfg designed to be distributed by 3rd party distrubtions such as Fedora Project or Arch Linux.
+willie.cfg is a default configuration file for willie, that assumes the OS is new enough to have /run and /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d
+willie.service is a systemd service file that assumes you are using a rather recent Willie and has no multiple instance support (TODO). It also assumes that the system has a special user named willie designated for running the bot and this user has access to /run/willie (should be setup by willie.conf in /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d), /var/log/willie and /var/lib/willie
+Default installation paths:
+ willie.cfg /etc
+ willie.conf /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d
+ willie.service /usr/lib/systemd/system
