This option is specifically for using a pre-existing ccache as a ticket
armor, right?  If, in the future, we are doing anonymous pkinit to
derive the armor ticket, then kinit will presumably create its own
credentials to use for that; if we are doing some future EKE-like armor,
then we won't use a separate credentials cache at all.

Here's the current getopt string in MIT krb5's kinit:


Zhana's suggestion of 'A' is taken for no-addresses.  'f' and 'F' are
also taken.  It looks like 'T' is available (for "ticket-based armor").
