postfaq 1.12

Someone sent me mail saying that postfaq would be better if one could specify the username and password for authenticating to a server. That was pretty simple to add, so I went ahead and did so.

Note all the regular caveats about cleartext passwords, plus the password is a command-line option and therefore visible to anyone on the system; I'm making the assumption that this is mostly for use with NNTP passwords that aren't particularly important or valuable. I might have to rethink this later, particularly if I actually add SSL support like I've been thinking about doing for a while. Maybe I should add .netrc support....

Anyway, you can get this from the postfaq distribution page.
