As I'm in the processing of sharing my user's dotfiles, I'd like to cleanse my confs of any sensitive info, ex: irc server passwords by keeping them in different locations. As weechat does not parse .netrc for irc servers, is it possible to add a feature that would allow one to send the password to weechat via command line flags during init?

If security is an issue (records left in .bash_history, for instance) the password file can be hashed and whose location is then fed to weechat-curses.
