Make redshifting rounding an option in pdf_analysis.

## Unreleased
### Added
- Provide the possibility not to store a given module in cache. This can be useful on computers with a limited amount of memory. The downside is that when not caching the model generation will be slower. (Médéric Boquien)
- An option `redshift\_decimals` is now provided in `pdf\_analysis` to indicate the number of decimals to round the observed redshifts to compute the grid of models. By default the model redshifts are rounded to two decimals but this can be insufficient at low z and/or when using narrow-band filters for instance. This only applies to the grid. The physical properties are still computed for the redshift at full precision. (Médéric Boquien)
### Changed
- Make the timestamp more readable when moving the out/ directory. (Médéric Boquien)
