Yes. The more I look at this, the worse the idea of custom syntax looks. Yes,
I realize there are drawbacks to using JSON, but this is worse.
Further, there's a lot of horse-cart inversion here. This proposal involves
letting the syntax for sync_list configuration determine the feature set for
N-sync. That's backwards; we should decide the total list of features we want
to support, and then adopt a syntax which will make it possible to have them.
