Yeah, it's debatable if it should show passwords or not. Would it be a 
security risk?
On the other hand, tgtadm requires root privileges, and the passwords 
are perhaps in clear text written somewhere (i.e., config file)?

In either case, *if* tgtadm supported showing passwords, it should only 
do so with an additional switch (--mode target --op show-all?).

OK, in that case, I should have it ready by Monday.
