virt-cat now works on encrypted guests

In libguestfs 1.7.4, virt-cat can be used on encrypted guests:

# virt-cat -d F13x64Encrypted /etc/
Enter key or passphrase ("/dev/vda2"): ***
Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
Kernel \r on an \m (\l)

We’ve made a change to the way the virt-cat command line works (I’m going to make similar changes to the other libguestfs virt tools), but don’t worry because the old style is still supported and will remain supported indefinitely. The new style is less ambiguous and more flexible though.
