Add option to disable renaming of files for uniqueness for SFTP poller handler

We have multiple SFTP/FTP Poller Handler FSH's in MPGW's. When it attempts to copy a file down from a remote location, it tries to temporarily rename the file. I understand that this is necessary if there are multiple pollers and it renames the file for uniqueness for that poller. However, if we are not in that use case, we would like to disable that functionality. Additionally, we would like nothing to be done to the file when copying it down other getting it. The equivalent to an SFTP/FTP get with no renaming or deleting required.
