I think I fixed all of them.

Committed. Now we have this:

--wordlist[=FILE] without a FILE will use the wordlist configured in 
john.conf (same as for batch-mode)

--loopback[=FILE] is a new option for using a .pot file as a wordlist. 
This will imply --dupe-suppress. If FILE is not given, the active pot 
file is used.

--dupe-suppression is a new option switch that turns full dupe checking 
(and buffering) on, regardless of size.

I had to drop options flags for a couple old options that could do fine 
without them. Now we are completely out of options flags unless we go 

Frank, could you tweak bash_completion for this please? BTW I also added 
a hidden option --length=N, force a lower max. length (mostly for 
debugging but this can be useful in other cases too).
