Re: Feature Request: clear saved data from the command line

After posting this, another thought comes to mind. If there were an option
to clear the authentication data when the user logs out of Windows (or logs
in to Windows), that would solve my needs more directly. However, I presume
that adding a command-line option might be an easier stop-gap solution.

Thanks,

-Jim
