This should be a one liner in your favorite scripting language:

# GNU sed¹
passc() {
    pass "$@" | sed -ne '1p; 2,$w /dev/stderr' | clip-cmd

# Ruby
passc() {
    pass "$@" | ruby -e 'puts $stdin.gets; warn $stdin.read' | clip-cmd

The metadata is written to stderr instead of stdout, but the same effect
is achieved.


¹ Not implying sed is anyone's favorite scripting language
