Is using '&' a good idea, since unix shells will require it to be escaped? Otherwise it will fork a background process with the command line up to it, and then try and run the following bits as their own command. '!' also makes bash very unhappy (if you try and include a commit message on the command line with a '!' then it tries to search the command history which is never what *I* want YMMV)

I'm not entirely clear on what this means. I would expect something like mtn://server?include=pattern&exclude=pattern I think. Is this what you mean? Perhaps an example url or two would help. Maybe just the "!" in your example above is confusing me.

Personally, I think I'd be fine with this replacing the --include/-- exclude options as long as I don't have to do my own url encoding.
