Well, you won't need to specify it on the command line, but if we don't
do hex-encoding, then the characters ':' (colon), CR, and LF would not
be allowed (as they're part of the passwd-like file format).  I guess
':' is a possible character in salts in your hashes?  If so, we do need
to support hex-encoding.
