[pgpool-hackers: 2929] pg_md5: Usability

First my use-case; I need to create the pool_passwd before pgpool is
started, so I need to use
pg_md5 -m -f conf/pgpool.conf -u md5_user md5_password
which I know is deprecated; I can't use -p, since this a non-interactive
script. Maybe there should be an option for an input file with users /
passwords in unencrypted format (user:password).
Also, I found the
pg_md5 -u md5_user md5_password
command a little confusing, since it output
where I was really looking for the line to append to pool_passwd, e.g.
Attached is a small documentation patch, but if somebody could explain
the idea behind and use-cases for the w/o -m case (68675...) then I can
include that in my patch.
Feedback on this would be appreciated.
