I think good UI would be to merge information from all available
sources into the URL format, complain if it's contradictory, and just
remember the URL.  Perhaps also translate the stored database

(I agree with Chad downthread that having to remember to URL-encode
things like *, in a command line context, would be annoying.  Also, if
we keep --include/--exclude available for automate users, then GUIs
don't have to implement that either.)

Can we maybe restrict get_netsync_connect_command and friends to
defining proxy/tunnel operations?  No, I don't have a precise
definition of that, but I'd like it to be for special cases only and
not redundant with the command line.
