Set Up File Provisioning Plugins

File provisioning plugins can be used to extend the Dockstore CLI to allow for input and output files to be downloaded or uploaded to new and/or proprietary services. By default, the Dockstore CLI tries to read input/output files from the local filesystem and copy/hard-link to them. If that does not work, it will look at whether any of the installed plugins can handle the files. Finally, it will try using commons-vfs2 to handle the files.
