"zac pap" command line options to control the reboot behavior for specific cases

With respect for our users we can't just down their workstations during work, when the scheduled patch event runs. Therefore of course we have a reboot behavior configured in the patch policy, so that the user will get prompted and have time to finish up his work. However, there are situations, when we needed to deviate from that behavior, like for our automated OS deployment, where "zac pap" is called at a certain point, but no user interaction can be expected. It would be very helpful in those cases, if "zac pap" would accept options to define the reboot behavior for this instance. Without providing options, "zac pap" would fall back to configuration definitions.

Example: usage of zac pap
zac pap [-ri|-ra
