There is no --mirror-bootstrap-security option. This was (it is
corrected in git) a left-over from the rename of --mirror-bootstrap* to

lh_bootstrap* uses --mirror-bootstrap

not wrt/ indices handling, but with config handling (only in git). same
with the other settings, as this is caused by the same config handling bug.
