#32772: Filter for disabling Customizer

 This filter gives developers a simple way to enable the 'no-customizer-
 support' class within the body tag. Due to the fact that the 'customizer-
 support' class is added via JavaScript on page render, it cannot be
 manipulated using any core filters or actions currently.

 By setting the filter value to false, the Customizer is essentially hidden
 from the admin and the links that were currently pointing at the
 Customizer (widgets, themes, etc...) are reverted to their previous
 dashboard destinations.

 Currently, disabling and reverting the Customizer requires any number of
 different methods ranging from CSS overrides to hide the Customizer menus,
 manually removing specific menu items (https://wordpress.org/support/topic
 /remove-customize-from-admin-menu?replies=5), or using JavaScript to
 target and hide the Customizer-specific items.

 This filter makes this process in to a simple boolean filter so that
 developers who do not want or need the Customizer can easily remove it.
