I don't understand why it's needed. I assume "--askpass file" only refers to certs? If so, if you have a valid reason to have a cert without a passphrase, then you'd simply use the "--nodes" option in openssl to "strip" the password out - i.e make your cert not have a password.

There is no reason to have an extra option to grab a cert password from somewhere else.
