wallet: allow the user to supply a keypair .json file in addition to pubkey for some commands #5439

show-stake-account, show-vote-account, and delegate-stake (probably others too) make the use figure the public key from a keypair json file and supply that public key on the wallet command-line. This is a little annoying/painful. eg:

$ VOTE_PUBKEY=$(solana-keygen pubkey ~/validator-vote-keypair.json)
$ IDENTITY_PUBKEY=$(solana-keygen pubkey ~/validator-keypair.json)
$ solana-wallet create-vote-account "$VOTE_PUBKEY" "$IDENTITY_PUBKEY" 1


Let's also permit this form:

$ solana-wallet create-vote-account ~/validator-vote-keypair.json ~/validator-keypair.json 1

as a convenience to users who don't mind giving the full keypair, even though only the public key is required.
