Hmm, there's something in what you say --- it gets us out from under the
need to anticipate what wildcard rules people would want.  I think it
loses something in ease-of-use, but we could have the utility command
too for the simple check-one-function case, and direct people to the
function as soon as they want something fancier.

What about check-strength options?
