Bug Description

Adding /home/shish/syncany as a repository, syncany complained that the directory didn't exist -- since it was entered as part of the "create a repository" process, I would expect it to be created

This has been discussed before here:

I don't think it's a good idea to do it automatically. Maybe we should add a prompt that asks, or a checkbox a la "create if it does not exist. Otherwise you'd end up with a directory/bucket with a typo in it ...

What do you think?

I think a checkbox would be smoothest -- have it default to false (for safety, as you point out), but remember the setting (so that if I explicitly take responsibility for my typos once, the next time I create a repository it doesn't get in my way).
