Ben, Please ignore my previous reply. My reply options were screwed up in that.

if we add hashkey options to the existing -x/-X (--show-rxfh-indir/ --set-rxfh-indir), I think it won't be appropriate going by the command name.
We could change the command name to something like --show-rssconfig /--rss-config but I'm afraid would that be backward compatible?
