RE: [PATCH]: Add --password-file and --password-envvar

I'm not sure if the envvar option is really any safer than the argument option, if the command line is really read from the environment block on these platforms. As such I don't think having a command option for that really helps.

For the file solution it might be more useful to use both username and password from that file.

Subject: [PATCH]: Add --password-file and --password-envvar

Attached is a log message and a patch which adds the new options
'--password-file' and '--password-envvar'. It also adds Julians warning
to the '--password' help text.

I haven't found out yet how the test suite checks the '--password'
option. So I tested it just by hand :)

Also I added a check that stdin is specified only once. This should
probably go into a seperate patch.

This is just the first iteration of the patch. Comments welcome.
