I understand your position, but I think we should have just one PASS
flag, not two. My preferred option would be to have a single flag, -k,
which takes no argument, and require that passwords be read from

On a somewhat related note, it seems strange that both ii and sic have
default hosts which are actually different. In my opinion the -h flag
should be made mandatory, with no default host.
