What about
ShowFieldsInCracks = [all|All|ALL|coma_separated_list_of_fields]
Valid field names could be listed in the john.conf comment.

Then, we do have just one additional option, but more flexibility with
only a little additional effort.

We could even use two different config options for crack output and
--show output, and use the current list of fields as default values for
these config options.
