VeraCrypt Format.exe command line switch /keyfile (encrypt with keyfile)

The veracrypt.exe has the command line option /keyfile to mount a volume, but the VeraCrypt Format.exe does not have a command line option to create a new container using a keyfile.

Would it be complex to implement that feature?

Thank you for the great software!

I'm also very interested in this feature.

In fact what I need is to create and mount a truecrypt volume without having to expose the password in the command line.

An alternative would be to provide a way to call the tryecrypt-format and truecrypt command and pass a password without revealing the password in the command line
(Could pass via an environment variable for example and specify a specific swich in the command line)

I would be willing to donate a little if this feature became available in the near future.

I guess adding this shouldn't be too complex and it would open quite some doors for automated setups. Can anyone estiamte the effort?

Who else would be interested / would be willing to chip in?
