I think making --field-separator-char=C a hidden option (or not even
listing it under --list= hidden-options) is a good idea.
(As long as it is a hidden option, bash completion will nevertheless use
it when pressing [tab].)

If someone uses this option nevertheless, a warning should be written to
stderr, pointing out the correct solution for the problem of hashes
containing colons (as part of the salt).
