mtn sy nvm* --exclude nvm.experiment*

would become

mtn sy mtn://*&!nvm.experiment*

"sync with, include 'nvm*' and do not include

The query string is split at '&', with the parts being include or
exclude patterns based on whether there's a leading '!'.

That shouldn't be needed unless your branch names have funny things like
'&', '!', '%' or '#'., we actually don't do urldecoding right now. I suppose that should
be added in case people want to use those funny characters, or want to
have other special characters and urlencode them based on whether they
ought to be urlencoded rather than whether they'll not work.
