Related to YunoHost/yunohost#196, it would be nice from a UX point of view to inform the admin/user about the constrain on the password rather than coldly refusing a password after it has been given (probably cancelling the whole command, then the user needs to reanswer every argument)

More generally, there are several case where we might want to add a comment to clarify what is asked. For instance, during the postintall, it may be good to have a comment explaining what is the Main domain and that it can be changed later for instance.


Allow arguments in the actionmap to specify a string key corresponding to a comment that shall be displayed before asking the argument.

For instance, we may have :

                    full: --new-password
                        password: ask_new_admin_password
                        pattern: *pattern_password
                        required: True
                        comment: comment_about_admin_password_strengt

which may produce :

# yunohost tools adminpw
Administration password: 
You are defining a new administration password. Beware that you password should be at least 8 characters - though it is good practice to use longer password (passphrases) and/or to use various kind of characters.
New administration password:
