Cool.  I think having a regexp would be great in terms of flexibility,
but maybe not if it causes too much added complexity?  Having a list
would probably be simpler to implement and/or use.  But of course, if we
do go with a regexp, the user could always use C-h f regexp-opt RET to
automatically generate a regexp from a list of strings, rather than
hand-write it.  I guess my vote would be a regexp, if it doesn’t make
authinfo--hide-passwords overly complicated.

Thanks for working on this, Lars.
