Note that you will still need to enter the password in Money in order for it to open the Money file. If -o is specified, then MSMoney Quotes will automatically open Money in addition to updating quotes.
With this option, I believe users can get in the habit of using MSMoney Quotes’s shortcut instead of the standard Money shortcut as a means to open Money (with the added benefit of updated quotes!
