[pass] Patch for adding a multiclip option

I like the --tail option.

I find myself running  "pass myAccount" to verify the username.  I then run
"pass -c myAccount", because I don't want to lift my hand to copy the
password to the scrap.

Much as I like the unix philosophy of do one thing and do it well, I've
always seen it as a guide, not a religion.  Would it be so bad to save the
end user some keystrokes?

Eschewing conveniences creates obstacles to adoption.  It begs the
question, "Do we only want a certain type of people to use this software?"
