Maybe, although specifying it might be a little tricky.

I think you'd have to tie that setting into the configuration instead of
passing it through as a command-line argument. So things get interesting
when you have multiple `pack.extraCruftTips` commands: which of them are
allowed (or not allowed) to specify missing objects?

I think you could do something like:

    [packExtraCruft "foo"]
        exec = /path/to/script
        allowMissing = true

and specify multiple pack.extraCruftTips-esque programs, that each allow
(or not) passing missing objects.

I dunno. It might be overkill, but I could also see a compelling
argument towards doing something like that. It may equally be OK to set
`pack.allowMissingExtraCruftTips` once and have it apply to all values
of `pack.extraCruftTips`.

That might be a reasonable compromise, and it doesn't feel like overkill
to me. I can't easily imagine a circumstance where you'd want to allow
some programs to specify missing objects and not others.

Thanks,
Taylor
