Command Line Consistency

Dear Werner,

I wonder if the command line for

--disable-cipher-algo name

could be made consistent with

--personal-cipher-preferences string

Currently, the former can only accept the name of the algorithm,
whereas the latter can accept either the name or the OpenPGP number.
In addition --disable-cipher-algo only accepts a single name at a
time, whereas the other similar options tend to accept a list.

Just a thought.
