This allows to use Group Filter for sync jobs so matches can not just be
included but also excluded. For this the "group-filter" configuration
syntax has been extended with an optional "behaviour" parameter.
this can be "include" or "exclude". Filter will be applied in the order
of the config file. For example config entries could look like this:

Will continue include the match for compatiblity.
        group-filter regex:.*

Will exclude the match from the sync job.
        group-filter exclude:regex:.*10[1-3].*

Will include the match to the sync job.
        group-filter include:regex:.*10[2-3].*

So after this 3 lines, 100, 202 and 103 would be included but 101
would be excluded.

Since obmitting the behaviour parameter will continue to include the
match, this parameter is not intendet to be set to "include" by the GUI
or other tooling. Its just there to make manual configuration edits more
