wallet: add sweep_single command #2634
This patch adds a new command
@stoffu Thanks for the explanation. The phrase "with no change" was not clear to me.
Is it better to send to a random address rather than send it back to the same wallet as change (change of zero)? In the latter case we could choose to spend them at some point. That would incur some tx fee, but would avoid the (perhaps insignificant, I'm not sure) reduction of privacy from the fact that these outputs will statistically have one less spend on average than others. (Same applies to sweep_all)

I don't know for sure, but I intuitively feel that the statistical difference is too small to be detected by blockchain analysis. Also, as stated, this point applies to the current
I agree it isn't specific to this feature (in particular, sweep_all is similar, though in that case the intent may often be to retire the wallet, so slightly different), so I agree it should not delay this PR at all. I was mostly raising the issue for awareness.
