This is a very elegant approach. I really like it. But it's also a huge
limitation for third party tools who would like to share data through pass.
I mean I currently use both the firefox addon and dmenu script. And I think
it make sens to delegate format management to pass to ensure compatibility
The main question behind this is : what is the purpose of pass ?
* to be a command line passwords tool ?
* or to be a command line based password manager facilitating access to
password data to third tools ?
