Xpra: Ticket #317: pass more options when using remote ssh start

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:

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

The code is generic enough that we can easily add more if needed, this will do for now.
