Last archived run number
Add the ability to return the last archived run number.

On the Run Control GUI we are currently using
show_recent_runs.sh and parsing the output to show the current run number.
However I feel like a cleaner way and easier to maintain in the future would be to have daqinterface writing a local variable that we can read.

Please note that you can have the GUI directly control the run number - i.e., instead of it calling
and having DAQInterface figure out the highest run number and then add +1 to it, you could make the run number explicit when sending the start transition, like so:
send_transition.sh start <run number>
...and DAQinterface will use whatever you pass it. That way the GUI will know all along what the run number is.
