Technically, it's "done". We're ready for David Waite's client-side
certs provider now. :-)

Yes, it's my fault, I apologize. I noticed that we had a
--no-auth-cache commandline switch, and also had a 'store-password'
config file variable. I said to myself, "bah, these two things should
just map to the same concept. The only difference is that one is
temporary, and one is permanent."

I guess I was too eager to oversimplify. I didn't realize anyone out
there actually wanted something in between "cache nothing" and "cache
everything".

But cmpilato has already proposed a solution to get the halfway-state
back again. :-)
