I vote for 3+4:
while using --expert you get asked every time, this is good for experts
as they know the problems. But as --expert is normaly the wrong way^(TM)
there need to be a better way to set it, even without --expert. This may
be done by a additioal command (btw. I would use something including
'card' in the command name).
