yeah like your ideas here ;)
However, having it as a conf option you would have to go and edit conf file 
everytime...having it as a commandline option, you could "just" add the switch
when writing the command..
But either way works for me, as long as it gets there ;)
Would be cool with option of what to log (outpur decrypted password also), and
filename etc, and I guess this speaks in favour of the conf way of doing it :)

Just giving him a good exercise, that's all
