You can save keys from the output of:

  megadf --debug=cache

I'm not sure what recovery key is, because I haven't looked at mega API for
years (ever since they removed the API docs), and there was no such thing in
2013/2014. But password key and master key are enough to decrypt everything. And
maybe the password key salt for the new style accounts.

Anyway, just store the password somewhere safe, because everything necessary is
derived from it anyway.

Someone (other than me, I don't add features anymore, myself) would have to add
a command for that. API for that is fairly simple, but the CLI doesn't expose
