Subject: john --list=invalid

Hi magnum,

currently there is no way to distinguish valid and invalid values for

IMO, valid are all hard-coded values implemented for --list=, even if
they might produce no output.
Also valid are section names in john.conf (or in the config file
supplied with --config=...

$ ./john --list=hidden-options
--list=NAME               list configuration, rules, etc
--mkpc=N                  force a lower max. keys per crypt
$ echo $?
$ ./john --list=?
inc-modes, rules, externals, ext-filters, ext-filters-only,
ext-modes, build-info, hidden-options or <conf section name>
$ echo $?
$ ./john --list=invalid
$ echo $?

It would be good if the last command could set a return code != 0, as
long as there are no sections [Invalid:*] in the config file.
