Xpra: Ticket #2794: specify connection attributes using the connection string

Similar to #1160 / #2424, should re-use the same syntax, ie:

xpra attach tcp://,cork=0,nodelay=1,encryption=AES:keyfile=key.txt,auth=file:filename=password.txt

We already have #2460, but the syntax above is better for shell compatibility as it does not require quotes. (no &)

Also, support for encryption options needs adding.

Done in r26644 (+r26645 typo), with fixes and improvements in r26647, r26648, r26650.

encryption=AES is assumed if the display string contains keyfile or keydata. keydata can be used to specify the encryption key data inline, ie:

xpra attach tcp://user:PASSWORD@

The keydata can also be specified as hex:

xpra attach tcp://antoine:YOURPASSWORD@

Or using a keyfile:

echo -n "0123456789ABCDEF" > ./aes.txt
xpra attach tcp://antoine:YOURPASSWORD@
