The attached patch adds --out option to user-show for saving user's

I hate to nitpick here, but is "out" really a descriptive option name
here? I'd prefer something more explicit, like '--save-cert-to', or
maybe even have this operation implemented as a separate command


This keyword was already used with several commands. For consistency
might be better to have it the same.

True. I see this options is being used in the following commands:

  - cert-show
  - vault-retrieve
  - host-show
  - service-show
  - user-show (proposed)

While the first two seem to be an acceptable fit for an option called
--out, as they mainly deal with cert/secret, using the '--out' for the
latter three is a poor decision imho.

I agree the consistency is important, I'm just not happy to see this
spread further.

Perhaps we should go with something like `--certout' instead, and
support `--certout' in addition to `--out' in host-show and
service-show, esentially deprecating `--out' for those commands.

Good idea, but we should do this for all commands, at the same time.
IMO this is not for 4.2, you may file a ticket to deprecate --out option and replace it by --certout or something.

I will do review is nobody is against this patch :)

Is a ticket somewhere for this?
