I agree with the approach to simplifying steps for multi-user/stores and
the reasoning.

What about taking this a step further with a configuration file? .gpgid
and PASSWORD_STORE_DIR were simply the easiest way to do basic
single-user repos.

A configuration file might map aliases to directories+keys. A
commandline flag would allow users to specify the directory.
