related to #316

When using remote start, like:

xpra start ssh:HOST:port --start-child=xterm --exit-with-children

At the moment, start-child and exit-with-children are the only two flags being forwarded to the remote start command.

Here are some of the flags that we may want to forward to the server when using remote start.
Not all flags are candidates, only those that affect the server in a way that cannot be changed are overridden afterwards.

These are the strongest candidates in descending order:

  • session-name
  • no-pulseaudio
  • socket-dir
  • mmap-group / no-mmap
  • readonly
  • enable-pings
  • clipboard-filter-file
  • encryption
  • system-tray
  • encoding - (since we may provide a better default)
  • speaker-codec and microphone-codec, meh
  • clipboard, notifications, system-tray, cursors, {{{bell}}

And whilst we're at it, maybe make the flag forwarding code generic?
