This will probably work for everyone but me.  I use GPG's throw-keyids
directive, so when you try to fetch the "current" keys from a given
encrypted file, they all show up as all zeros.

If you want to go ahead and remove the reencrypt parameter from init,
I can just maintain a local patch (git stash for the win!).  I have no
idea how many pass users use throw-keyids, but I imagine the number is
pretty small.
