Hello Eric,

This started with a config (see V4). We didnot want scripts that pass this
parameter to suddenly stop working if for some reason the
verification is turned off so the optional parameter was just
parsed and no validation happened if the CONFIG was turned off. This was
changed to a commandline parameter after feedback from the community, so I would prefer
to keep it *now* as commandline parameter. Let me know if you are OK with
this.

Regards,
JK
